The version I've just committed keeps the config settings at their defaults,

For full authenticated access, you need Python-PAM, yes.  As an
alternative, you can now set your Xen-API server up to use no
authentication, with something like this in xend-config.sxp:

(xen-api-server (( none)))

This will open TCP port 9363, listening only on the local interface, using no
