I'm not objecting to this going in as-is, but I want to at least ensure
we're not heading in blind.

In practice, a lot of what I'm trying to achieve with some of the
extended commentary on the autotests thread is better pre-checking of
this kind of form, although admittedly at a rather lower level than "is
xenstored running".

Well - I ask specifically because there is a thread on xen-devel about
upping the minimum supported version of Ocaml, in order to simplify a
couple of aspects.

This would manifest as oxenstored no longer building on older distros. 
(I've got no idea if the specific suggestion would impact OSSTest this

For now - lets just fix our testing gap.
