I've tried on all three of those and everything seems good -- but I'm only
seeing Xen 3.4 on those instance types, so we're not really testing anything
interesting there.

I'll resist asking whether there will be Xen 4.x anywhere else in EC2 in the
near future since I've had enough of a taste of Amazon NDAs to know that I
almost certainly wouldn't get an answer... ;-)
