  I was gun-shy of taking the Dom0's Lenny kernel because it was a x64 and the 
DomU was an
x86-32, and I didn't want to open that can of worms.

  I can see both sides of the issue. I control the DomU too, at least, as long 
as there
isn't a root exploit within it. ;) It's a webserver, so it's obviously more 
exposed than
the Dom0.
