I do not quite see how Xen requires one to do something special for
maintenance? With pygrub you can use the stock kernel with your Xen
domUs just fine. I have not seen any issues with stability either, but
then again I am running mostly just web and mail servers without
really high traffic.

But if KVM would offer improvements for performance over Xen, I should
perhaps try it out, as sometimes when doing backups and other things
that require a lot of disk I/O a better performance could be wished
