Yes, should be easy. Will try to plug a binary port in.
By the way, I just managed to crash a whole machine by trying to
boot Solaris 11.3:
# builder = "hvm"
memory = 2048
vcpus = 1
name = "Solaris0"
disk = [ 'file:/root/sol-11_3-text-x86.iso,6:cdrom,r', '/dev/zvol/zroot/solaris0,raw,hda,w' ]
kernel = "/root/xen/solaris/unix"
ramdisk = "/root/xen/solaris/boot_archive"
extra = "/platform/i86xpv/kernel/amd64/unix -B console=ttya,livemode=text"
#boot = "c"
usbdevice = 'tablet'
vnc = 1
vnclisten = '0.0.0.0'
vif = [ 'bridge=bridge0' ]
/root/xen/solaris/unix and /root/xen/solaris/boot_archive where extracted from sol-11_3-text-x86.iso
("Intel text-only image").
