Not that sure.   I was working on this last October, and it looks like 4.1.2 
was released right around the time I wrapped up the last set of packages.   I 
was working with 4.1.1, and then I switched to unstable when I ran into trouble 
getting HVM going.

Suits me.   I may take this opportunity to work on the Xen wiki page for Arch 
Linux to document start-to-finish domU configuration, so having it ready to 
roll for 4.2 will be helpful.   I've also been submitting patches to make the 
Xen init scripts fit in Arch's somewhat non-standard init.
