Package: xen-utils-common
Version: 3.4.2-2
Severity: important

On a fresh Debian Sid system, I get this:

    # xm new
    Unexpected error: <type 'exceptions.ImportError'>

    Please report to xen-devel at lists.xensource.com
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    ImportError: No module named xmlproc

xmlproc is not available in Squeeze or Sid.  It appears to be provided
by "python-xml" in Lenny.
