No problem. :-)

Well, actually it wasn't me but Dmitry Nedospasov (@nedos on Twitter
btw.) who did most if not all of the pygrub stuff.

IIRC there's no iscsi support yet. Can you outline what would be
necessary to get iscsi support into xen-tools?

If I remember correctly this is true. I Cc'ed our xen-tools developer
mailing list (http://xen-tools.org/mailman/listinfo/xen-tools-dev) so
all of the xen-tools devs can have a look at it (therefore also the
nearly full quote), especially Dmitry who wrote that part.
There's also a xen-tools users' mailing list at
http://xen-tools.org/mailman/listinfo/xen-tools-discuss in case you
didn't know about it.

Ok, we'll have a look at it.

And thank you for the bug report (and the tweet ;-).
 for the Cc'ed list, I'm refering to
P.S.: I'm @XTaran on Twitter.
