I can't remember the details offhand, but there's a new field in the
SEXPR for domains that lets you mark them as autostart, so we could
probably figure out some form of hacky implementation for the new 
scheme. The old symlink way is easy- we just re-use the code from
the QEMU driver which does the same symlink magic
