Would seem to make sense.

Uniformly using e.g. "(Dom%d) " instead of "(XEN) " for domain output
might be best?

I don't think we should, not the least because guest output doesn't
really specify a log level, and default log level messages make it
through with default options.

Will have to look at the patch itself later, but you should have Cc-ed
Keir in any case (as he will eventually need to ack it).
