I like Xen's feature of autogenerating those values if they are not supplied in
a config file, but for sake of persistency I want to inherit the once-generated
values and reuse them after the first creation of a domU.

I found it possible to query the values at runtime using xm list
--long but I'm not sure I'm going the most elegant route with that, it
would mean either wrapping around xm create or hacking a script to be
executed after domU creation to edit the configfile. This sounds messy
to me.

How are You handling this?
