IIUC, this idea is for R4.x release..? It will be nice to have, but in 
the meantime I'm still looking for a way to make this possible in R3.2 
without getting medieval (sed /usr/lib...script.sh).

It would be really nice to activate my script on a per-VM basis(!) from 
Qubes Manager settings. I'm having better luck doing it this way, 
running it before meminfowriter and after qubes-sysinit.
