Ok. IMO it's important for networking to work out of the box, so we should avoid e1000 as default.

Certainly for anything newer than XP it seems e1000 just works (or at
least could be fixed so it works) and is very efficient.  For XP though,

Mainstream support eol for xp is scheduled for 4/14/10. New licenses are no longer available.

Since 0.12 is targeted at 3/2/10, I think it's pretty reasonable to not support XP in the default configuration especially considering the advantage to every other guest in using e1000.
