What we really need is to make the REAL xen RPMs .. the ones produced in
this SIG .. work with systemd.  These RPMs are produced by Citrix, so we
need to get the right.

So, what works and what does not work (ie, no systemd integration
problem) needs to be addressed.

We don't want to create forked repos, IMHO.
