What would you suggest is the best way to allocate expandable disk
space to several xen domu's

I Favor ZFS but ZFS will need some time on NetBSD before it is ready
to go, LVM seemed like a logical second choice,
but 0 bytes for HVM is kind of a show stopper, I have heard that file
backed solutions are bad disk i/o, so I am open to suggestions.
