Along the same lines: enhance virt-manager to support deploying virtual
machine images based on virt-image and its XML image format. There are
lots of possible ways in which this could go, for example:

      * Focus on UI, build VM's based on images stored locally/in a
        fixed directory
      * Build above out to download images from a central server (or any
        webserver, which would aid in distribution of images)
      * Freeze an existing/running VM into an image
      * p2v migration that takes a physical installation and produces a
        VM image (even something simple that just scrapes bits off disk
        and packages them w/o worrying too much about device
        complications would be really valuable)
      * Tracking of image/machine association (think template images for
        a development group that they can 'check out' and use)
