Of course not, I'm saying we have a bottleneck on development if we
need to wait for Xen patches to be tested, and we can do better if we
had 0-day testing this for us. In this case it was *me* who brought up
the issue of a Xen conflict early, and later through other iterations
Toshi addressed this, given we have the technology and bandwidth to do
more testing with 0-day we should not have to count on me or others to
do the proactive review to ensure there is no Xen conflict, or on
Boris for final confirmation. Its a nobrainer the value of integration
of Xen with 0-day.
