Why should the wrapper be in /etc?!
xendomains isnt in /etc either.

So they should mail here if they find substantial functionality missing.
Until then they continue to not enable xencommons and run their own
startup script.

How should it handle exec vs. no-exec? Just a single yes/no knob, so
essentially sysv vs systemd?

No idea how long it takes to have a functional xenstored after running
it. Perhaps the forking has some overhead and it returns earlier than it
can process requests. If thats the reason why the loop exists in the
sysv runlevel script then that loop should be used only without --no-fork.
