The "xlexample.*" files have drifted apart rather distinctly.  This may
cause puzzlement at why the distinct choices were made.  Worse, I have an
unpleasant suspicion a naive user could benchmark with these files and
not realize performance differences were due to different settings, not
the domain type.

I chose 3 vCPUs and 384MB of memory.  This is in-between the values
currently in the examples.  I wonder whether I should have used the
values from pvhlinux as those may better reflect typical small VMs now.
