Good news, was what I hoped.

Currently on the cluster is running a redhat clone (Centos5). This
made me hope for an easy installation of XCP package, but the 64 bit
rebuild was more complicated than expected.
The next cluster should have a centos6, and on my test i would try
xapi-openstack-plugin - xapi - xen.
I'll start with tests in the coming days: if anyone is interested i
can keep the list updated of the progress.
