I know that Xen is designed for servers and such. But defined latency (e.g. real time) responsiveness is one of those characteristics that needs to be addressed early in the development lifecycle. What are the team's thoughts on achieving some sort of latency guarantee. (No fair punting by saying that some I/O devices can never guarantee latency, those devices do not need to be supported for defined latency situations.)
