I don't use network-bridge script, my Debian's /etc/network/interfaces looks
like this (note that Dom0 has no IP on that interface in my setup):

  bridge_stp off
  bridge_fd 5

Any particular reason to use "5"? Why not "0", or "1"?
Just the personal policy to stay as much close to the defaults as possible. I assume that FD is not set to something so small for some reason, which I wish not to have to find under pressure of something not working. I found 5 was small enough. (:

Probably, I will end up writing some wrapper to be used with
"bootloader" option. I would talks to TFTP, get specified pxelinux config
file, parse it, download the kernel and inirtd, than start up the VM.
Although, it has not been written yet.

Isn't that what pypxeboot does? http://grid.ie/pypxeboot/
The words "modified version", "patch", and "build" scares me.

But basically, yes, pypxeboot should work. Did not think about building a .deb of it instead of custom script.
