If you are familiar with routers you can try OpenWrt, it has a very good
build system that can generate Xen PV images directly, so you just need
to create the image and use it directly or dd it to a hard drive
partition or lvm lv. Then use this guest as you would use a normal
router/firewall and make all your DomUs use this other DomU as gateway,
proxy or whatever you need.
