OK, they don't work when not started by xend: xend can't connect to the
xenstored socket, which is strange because unixclient can. I guess xend
removes and recreates the socket even if xenstored is running, or something
like that.

I'm now back to running xenconsoled and xenstored from xend, but xenconsoled
sometimes fails (apparently when a domU crashes and is restarted before its
console can be attached to), and is not restarted by xend.

It would really be a lot nicer to have them supervised by runit separately,
so that if any of them were to fail, they could be restarted automatically.
