I don't use Debian, but from my experince using vendor-supported Xen
often saves a lot of headaches. I use RHEL 5.1 with bundled xen 3.1 (rpm
version still says 3.0 though), and the upgrade process from RHEL 5 ->
5.1 which includes xen 3->3.1 has been relatively smooth. Xen 3.1 is a
great improvement for me because it has 32-on-64 support and allows
running Opensolaris PV on linux.

If you like Debian, why not try Ubuntu Gutsy? It comes with Xen 3.1.
