I would prefer to be able to select upon boot-time if the VM is going to
run as fully virtualized or paravirtualized. That would enable me to
evaluate both solutions. I thought that it was possible to just make two
different config files that boot two different kernels for the same VM?

To my understanding, a fully virtualized VM must _not_ run a xen-enabled
kernel while a paravirtualized VM _requires_ a compatible xen-enabled
kernel. Is this correct?

I know. That kernel= statement is just a leftover from debugging.
