wasn't there something in remus that demands you have a drbd: device

Currently there's no alternate reality available in which one can run Remus?
blktap - not really there (and it would have other nice features)
dr:bd - doesn't play with xl
xm - not supposed to use that any more
older distros - will not take remus patches i guess
older howtos - broken since Remus is already part of Xen by now
(And I don't think it will get better by pointing at a workaround else
if one thing that should work isn't working.
Instead, soon, it will no longer work at all)
