Yep, they're working on it now.  It's in the Real Soon Now category, just 
needs some restructuring.  Of possible interest to you is that Xen will be a 
sub arch of i386 rather than a separate architecture when it's properly 
merged.  IIRC only really arch dep stuff in Vserver is the addition of the 
syscalls - that code should all be common to Xen and i386 so you probably 
won't have to do much (anything) to support it.

I saw it a while back.  If Michal is agreeable (i.e. if he's reasonably happy 
with the patch) I'll make sure it goes onto the Xen wiki so that people can 
ue the two together.

Ack.  In the meantime I'll continue hoping that one day we'll see the mainline 
incorporate vserver in a way that makes everyone happy :-)
