XENified images for XO

There's been some talk about building for multiple platforms:
Aside from the XO-1 hardware, various other builds with advocates
include Linux builds:
Ubuntu (widely used for Actitivies development),
Fedora 7 jh-build variant (widely used for OS and systems development),
Gentoo, Cebian, and other Linuv variants, advocated by adherents to
those operating systems.
and also virtualization builds:
VMware - which has free (gratis) server software for a variety of
platforms. VMware players have had commercial success and the players
tend to be stable.
Q/Emu - An open source emulator. Used a lot.
I suppose XEN could be added to the list.
There is a debate going on about the build and release cycle:
It's currently bogged down in the minimum buy-in for time based
releases (years in the release name).
