This is actually a really important point which I'd overlooked.  If we
disable network support completely then the appliance will have no
network, which will negatively impact things like virt-v2v and anyone
trying to run any network-aware commands.

On the other hand, it's desirable to disable network support for most
operations because of the speed up that is possible.  Also it's
possible that qemu will be configured with no user-networking (slirp)
at all.

We'll need to have some sort of flag to enable/disable/detect this,
and treat network support as a separable feature.  At the moment I
don't know exactly how this will work.

I don't understand this bit.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
