Thanks for your input, it helped a lot, as did getting a box up and
actually running it.  I think I have a better grasp of what it does, and
how it does it (for the basics).  I guess at first I was hoping it would
be more like one large virtual switch with solid VLAN capabilities.  I
see now that it is more like a normal bridge internally, but like having
one or more switches with IPSEC/*S/wan controlling your physical nics.

Some new questions: (I can hear the <groan> from here)  :-)

1)      for auth and conf security, how is keying handled?  

2)      how do you set this up other than defining the security model?

3)      How can you differentiate between a valid second xend host that is
running vnets, and a rogue xend box (unlikely at this time, but ...)
that got lucky in guessing your vnetid, and security setting.
