libguestfs doesn't support any disk types as such.  It just uses
whatever qemu supports, so the place to add a new disk type would be
in qemu:

http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=tree;f=block;hb=HEAD

No special action is required in libguestfs; it will just inherit
access to the new format once qemu has it.
