Actually you can run a Xen with PV guests inside an HVM virtual machine hosted 
by Xen.  I generally run a known-good Xen on my test machine and then run 
development versions of Xen inside HVM virtual machines.

You *can't* run Xen in a PV domain for the reason Tom stated, so if you don't 
have HVM-capable hardware this won't work.

It's not possible to run HVM-capable Xen *inside* an HVM virtual machine 
because Xen can't currently support nesting HVM.

Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
