Yes.  (The problem is very XenServer-specific too.)

To me the "obvious" solution here was to add a daemon or a frequently
running cron job that does the same thing, or to integrate daemon
functionality into the refresh-network-uuids script itself.  I still
like that approach and I'm completely willing to redo it that way.  I
had the impression, however, that we didn't want to create any more

Thus far my testing has been limited to installing this on a single 5.5
box and testing that it runs the script when I "touch
/etc/xensource/pool.conf".  That's because I don't have enough machines
to create a pool.  Obviously it needs better testing before it gets
pushed out.
