Jup, that was one of my thoughts, now that i think more about it it doesnt
look too fault-proof, especially when more than 2 dom0s are involved in 
a 'site' of dom0s.
Maybe some ldap where dom0s lock the domUs in could be nice.

Btw, from the docs now i have seen that clvm apparently does the locking,
evms isnt doing this currently (and is also heavier, but the preferred
solution i.e. when using SLES).
