yes, looks like -testing's /etc/xen and -unstable's /etc/xen are
compatible, and i think xen2 could use xen3's configuration, but not
sure about vice versa. at least xen3 has bochsrc, which is not
existent in xen2.

so i guess it is safer to use xen3's /etc/xen all the time to support
"parallel install".
