CentOS 5.0 shipped with 3.0.3.  I believe CentOS 5.1 shipped with something 
based on Xen 3.1.  The package names say 3.0.3 but they're basically 
lying ;-)

I suspect what's going on here is something weird to do with RPM version 
naming; they're trying to indicate that the CentOS 5.1 Xen is a newer version 
of the package of the same name from CentOS 5.0 and presumably renaming the 
package's base name would break something somewhere...
