For example, the VGA problem I can only infer, as always;  After a week of struggle, I heard that qemu-xen-traditional was "removed from Debian a long time ago".  Yet VGA forwarding doesn't work with qemu-xen, as I knew it hadn't supported VGA forwarding in the past.  I'm guessing and hoping that Xen-4.4.0 qemu-xen from source -will- support VGA forwarding but I have no proof of that since I've never had my questions answered.  So I embarked on this switch from Debian packages (4.3) to compiling source (4.4) and hope that this will give VGA forwarding.
And it turns out that going to Xen 4.4 source was not the right idea.  Still no VGA passthru.

Parsing config from /etc/xen/hex.cfg
libxl: error: libxl_dm.c:1371:device_model_spawn_outcome: domain 18 device model: spawn failed (rc=-3)

... And in /var/log/xen/qemu-dm-hex.log:
qemu-system-i386: -gfx_passthru: invalid option
It shouldn't be trying qemu-system-i386 because it's a 64bit Debian.  But where to fix it is a mystery.  So I am at a loss.
