I'm kind of in the boat that we should just use large files and skip
the partition all together, that way its an scp or a cp away from
having another guest.
That works also. one issue we would face is storing the xen guest
that will get big fast. But i do really like the idea. we could do
something to help us manage bottlenecks also. bring up an app server image
when needed and some quick configuration we have a new app server. or proxy
or any of our other services.
