Wasn't there a patch at one point to make it look
for /tool/xenstored/domid as an alternative? Can't find it now though...

There was also talk of init-xenstore-domain daemonising and serving as a
log message pump to syslog for the stubdom, in which case its pid would
be somewhat appropriate to store. I think that was only talk though.

It should be OK, I'd be interested in hearing if it isn't once this
issue is fixed.
