it's probably incompetence on my part, but I've found a lot of 
half-working ways to configure the bridge but none that act like bridges 
(hardware ones I mean) that I've used in the past. 

Also we've seen real problems here with nfs root, when starting a domU and 
cutting over to xen-br0 the connection seems to die. 

So, tell me: I have a dom0 with eth0 at, eth1 at, and I want to bridge a domU at to the dom0 such
that domU can go out over my 802.11 network to the world. How will my
xen-br0 and vif1.0 configuration look? I never got this to work correctly. 
What I really want is domU to DHCP to, and I never saw that 
work correctly either. But, if the bridge is really a bridge, that should 
"just happen" (or did on real hardware bridges).
