I think these guys are willing to work on it. I would suggest talking to them about it if it's a major concern (sounds like it is to me!)

I'd have loved to have heard that 18 months ago.
We might fix this issue, but I want to be sure it doesn't happen again.
When the next "must have" half-baked not-upstream feature comes along,
I'm seriously going to be pushing back a lot harder than I have done in the past.

Sounds fine to me. But just make sure it's "I don't have the bandwith to do this, you're going to have to help me" not "Xen sucks, get it out." Xen _might_ suck because it's not upstream, but I don't think that's the problem we're really dealing with here. Just a guess, though.
