Sebastien and I spoke about this on IRC.  It turns out that he was
seeing the really long download time for the system VM images.

There are a couple of other issues that he ran into (and is going to
try to look at):

The big one is that "xe host-list" isn't actually functioning, and you
can't add the host via the CS UI.

Sebastien also ran into an issue where root isn't able to log into the
box remotely.

He's going to try to take a look at those issues...  but I'll come
back to this after I get through the dependency license work.
