Trouble is, where do we put the library function?

If we share it somewhere then we add cohesion between these
tools which are currently completely separate programs.

We could add it to Sys::Guestfs::Lib, but it doesn't fit very well.
(And the code isn't exactly duplicated anyway, but different for
each tool).

I think it's fine as it is for now ...
