We use it for some (web) server isolation. I currently do manual updates
of Xen-related stuff, since there still is a bug that affects us
(#1999). I think there were some other problems with the network scripts
as well. But as far as I recall these problems will be fixed in 5.1.

Some machines also have problems with more than one vcpus in a domU (see
the recent discussion on the centos-virt list).

5.1 will have some useful improvements over 5.0 (e.g. support for
running i386 domUs with a x86_64 hypervisor/dom0).
