Adding that line got me going again.  And due to other's info I got the rest
of it working.  Thanks to all who replied.

To summarize, for Xen 4.1 on Debian Wheezy 7.0, what worked was:

1. Make the bridge yourself, rather than let xend do it. For Debian,
this is in /etc/network/interfaces:

        iface eth0 inet manual
        auto br0
        iface br0 inet static
            bridge_ports all

2. Leave xend-config.sxp untouched (all default, no 'network-script').

3. For the domU, a simple line:
        vif         = [ 'bridge=br0' ]
