However you may end up fighting with the fact xen-sources usually lags
several major versions behind gentoo-sources; and also end up fighting
with qemu-dm to get your hardware virtualized copy of Windows running.
Last I checked HVM is also quite slow.

Given all the options I've stuck with VMware for virtualizing MS
Windows lately.  Obviously not acceptable if you can't live with a
binary blob though, although these days you can pick up VMware Server
for free and it's perfectly functional.
