I see in the new xencommons that there's a XENCONSOLED_ARGS env which
could hold all this info and be set in /etc/sysconfig/xencommons but I'm
worried about it being overwritten by some of the checks in the script.

Oh, yes.  It would be better if the xencommons script prepended to the
ARGS (so that settings in the /etc/default file can override) rather
than unconditionally setting, or if we had two variables.

Either way works i guess, i like separate options because i think it's
easier for people to write automated scripts against to ensure the
options they want are enabled.

Yes.  I'd be happy to take a patch to implement separate options in
xencommons in unstable.



I'll go ahead and implement this and submit a patch, i'm alittle busy this week. How long do you think i have until unstable is merged? I would like to make sure this this patch included into the next version so trying to figure out my time line :)
