Aha!   I'd gone through the man page ... but somehow missed that.  Or
maybe misunderstood it.

This is important for me right now while working out kinks.   In
particular I need to be able to boot from a Live CD , then reboot from
the HD to see if the fiddling I'd done from the live CD worked.  Then
if not, reboot live CD again, fiddle more, then reboot from HD.

Maybe there is a cleaner way to do this so if so let me know.  But the
DESTROY option is certainly better than rebooting dom0 :-)
