Thanks for posting the script. It's been helpful to address some
outstanding questions about this adventure. One point that I'm still
wondering about is the kernel and initrd that are added to this sidecar
ISO. Should these match the kernel and initrd of the host (dom0), or the
kernel and initrd of the guest? If it's the guest, I guess there will
(potentially) be a 1:1 ratio of sidecar ISOs to guests?

I understand the script is just an example, but one error is worth
pointing out:
