I'd personally love to know what's the real minimum that needs to be
supported by Xen master/staging. I tried [1] to put a line in the sand
but that died. I'm also in the process on standing up some basic build
CI [2] and as part of that I would build on new stuff and build on the
oldest set that's supported.
