I understood what your point was and I didn't take any offense.
I would use Xen ALL the time if it ran with Openbsd, and I will help
in any way that I can to make that happen. I have been a low-level programmer
(ie mostly (8086) assembly level for my entire programming career (~30 years)
but now I am getting old and out-of-touch with current programming paradigms, so
I am not sure just how much I could realistically contribute to the project.
But the spirit is willing! :-) I *have* just started a project that has first 
until it is finished (I am getting paid for it), but, as I said, I am really 
interested in
Xen since it is so close to my core interests. Mike Adler and I wrote a 
simulator for the
CDC 6600 peripheral processor cluster back in 1969 when we worked for CDC 
at Arden Hills, Minnesota.
