It seems to me that Xen is full of stuff that aren't beneficial for
everybody, this includes NUMA, ACM and other stuff that certain
companies try to introduce... In a better world, the Xen binary would
have been more sleek and fast, and those extra features should be
loaded via stating a Module boot line in Grub. This way, testing would
be easy and it's more elegant than using a compilation flag.

Are there any thoughts to make Xen more modular in this manner?
It can be a real improvement for all of us freelancers that experiment
with this hot subject :)

Your thoughts?
