Good Morning Kip et al,

>The curious can track its status (known bugs, feature plans, release plans,

I've been watching this website since just before Christmas and have 
been somewhat excited by the progress you're making. I'm looking forward 
to the days of a FreeBSD dom0. I have a quick question about a comment 
in your STATUS file.

The server in particular have in mind is a dual Xeon which will take up 
to 16Gb of ram, I've been planning to upgrade it to 8Gb and put Xen on 
it. At which point (as I understand it) I would need PAE. From a selfish 
point of view I'd like to see PAE support for dom0 (I don't imagin 
allocating 4Gb+ to domUs).

Thanks for all your work on this Kip, I wish I could help out, but 
unfortuantly I'm missing sufficent kernel clue, more then happy to be a 
guineepig though.
