Rather than have to carry python and all the rest of the toolset, would
it be possible to:
1) Save a pre-built configuration database to send to xen
2) Save a recording of the control message traffic between dom0 and the
other domains using a BIG xen0, store the recording in an initrd and
then replay it back at startup time? (and log any errors somewhere!!)

It would be nice not to have to carry any shared libraries...
