 ah HA.

 well, given that phil has modified his d-i xen stuff to utilise lvm
 partitions (as the disk(!)) because i told him how abominably slow
 loopback is, this might actually turn out to be the best way to go.



 p.s. http://hands.com/d-i.  not officially announced.  don't blame me if

 xen guest OSes that does NOT involve using debootstrap.
