Rusty and I have been working on making the daemon startup be more robust so we don't have the previous timing issues from daemons depending on other daemons.
Thanks! I've applied it. Any reason why we actually need to kill xcs on xend stop? I'd much prefer my consoles to stay connected while I restart xend...

I actually prefer to have 'xend stop' shut down all xen related daemons,
and hence start with a clean state.
I think it's certainly useful, for development purposes at least, to have the ability to just restart Xend and nothing else.

Perhaps a xend restart-core?

xend restart isn't something that should be needed very often, so I
think I'd rather maximise the chances that it returns the system to a
working state, rather than worrying whether a few console windows need
to be reconnected.
If xenstore's state is all in persistent storage I'd like to see it
stoped too.
I don't really see a problem with that.
