I'll be supporting it via XenFS, so the applications in different domains will 
just mmap the same file in a XenFS share and it'll Just Work(TM).

It'll be a while before you see XenFS in a release - writing a full filesystem 
is going to be a pretty time consuming task.  You should probably write to 
the sockets API if you have an immediate requirement to get this working.  
Later on you can convert to my shared memory / Xen-aware networking stuff if 
you need the performance.
