Cool. Can you elaborate on 'highly experimental'? I'm now running the
'stable' distribution but would consider using unstable for this feature
if it were vaguely reliable.

How does migration work between SMP & non SMP servers? I'd assume that
running a domain with more cpu's than physically exist would take a
performance hit, but do you know how much? If I migrate a domain from a
dual cpu server to a single cpu server, is there an easy way of telling
the domain to only use 1 cpu now please?
