Why would you put your config files on a shared drive? Shouldn't they be configuration files, local to each host?

No, there's nothing like this currently available.

However, the commercial products based on Xen (or other VMMs, in fact) may
include support for stuff like this.

Some of the open source management apps people are working one might either
support this now or in the future, I guess.  You could always register a
feature request with one or more of them and see how they respond.
