Hello Bastian, Guido, Richard,

I think that, split out libxenstore is in debian packaging model, and
is the best alternate to provide the headers into xen package.
According to my knoledge, maybe I'm wrong, isolate the headers as
Ubuntu does, is in debian police. This way isn't simple, because we'll
need to do a big changes in Xen package. Well, I'll look the xen
package structure to know what need to do.
