But of course, was not included in RHEL 5.
FWIW I talked to one guy I know that's still using Xen on RHEL 5; he's
using the version of Xen that came with it (3.1 or something crazy like
that). Asked about running a newer version of Xen, he said:
"i don't see any value updating to xen 4 and still running el5
toolstack.. as for same trouble you can just upgrade to el6 and xen4centos"
So I'm a "I'm happy with this change but wouldn't argue for it" (+1 on a
-2 to +2 scale).
