Well, users would not want to invoke it directly. It's not useful to
have on the path.

I'd much rather continue to have a single script that's run to start all
the necessary components as per a configuration file, rather than
exposing them all individually to users.

If as Gerd says /usr/libexec/xen is deprecated (though I note that it is
still used by a bunch of stuff in FC3), then what do we go for?
/usr/lib/xen , /usr/share/xen or /usr/opt/xen ?
