There are no scripts yet since I'm still doing things by hand until
we're happy with the results.

Attempting to boot them is going to be a little harder.  These compose
attempts will be running within a Xen guest, so I wouldn't be able to
make use of say KVM to boot them, and we don't have a lab of test
machines in the PHX infrastructure to do QA like tasks like this.  We
have a long term goal for this, but it's just not there right now.
