A case just came up on Fedora-Xen where someone wanted to ensure that one particular domU started before the others. Made me think that we ought to include some well defined way to order the domains we want to autostart.

Do you mean waiting for a domain to start completely before starting the next one? That sounds hard.
On the other hand, in vanilla Xen it's simple just to order the files in /etc/xen/auto/ alphabetically, and the domains will start in the same order (or at least they did in 3.0.2):
$ ls -1 /etc/xen/auto/ 00-nfs 10-database 20-ftp 20-mail 20-web 30-bid 30-stats 40-blog 70-dev 80-aigars 80-dpress 80-gallery 80-jlo Rich. -- Emerging Technologies, Red Hat http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/ 64 Baker Street, London, W1U 7DF Mobile: +44 7866 314 421 "[Negative numbers] darken the very whole doctrines of the equations and make dark of the things which are in their nature excessively obvious and simple" (Francis Maseres FRS, mathematician, 1759)
