Dear all,

there is a problem with xl that will still prevent it tob e a 
replacement for xm in /etc/init.d/xendomains.

I tracked it down to the rdname function in the a.m. file, which is 
expecting the command

  xm create --dryrun --quiet <config-file>

to create a Lisp-like structure, where the xendomain script will extract 
the DomU name from.

  xl create --dryrun --quiet <config-file>

will not output such a structure. 

  xl -d -f <config-file> 

will do, but as soon as combined with -n, it will not.

My setting is starting/shutting down only DomUs mentioned in
