Fair enough, I suppose a better question is how do you plan on
maintaining support for all the new hardware (even ia32 only)over time? 
If I had the goal of porting xen to amd64, I'd much rather port a xen
patch onto the linux kernel than fork the kernel, stuff in the xen
infrastructure and then maintain my fork for all eternity ;-)

Is this a reasonable idea?  And if so, do you have suggestions on places
to start.
