It is evident that it is a bad design choice to let Xen be aware of the
internals of domU, but I would like to know if it can be implemented as some
sort of extra or something. Anyway, that is what would be the _ideal_ system
management scenario. What would be practical is some form a message passing
system, where a process running inside the domU can get messages directly from
the dom0 without the help of network.

Is there any fool proof way to get an ip of the domU using its name? It is
possible that the domU has been configured internally with a totally different
IP from the one that has been assigned to it via the dhcp.
Thanks for your time.
