Hmm - quite interesting! So a good optimum Xen processor would be a
MP, dual-core, HT processor - this gives you quite abit of flexibility
with domU's im guessing.

What specific processor's are you using for your server, also, is it a
brand-name? I would be interested in hearing about the HW involved and
what you are using them for (generally eg how many domUs and what they
do). As i am sorting initial thoughts on our HW choices at the moment.
