The information at the virt-install level is alot of fine grained,
and currently planed to be based of the full release name of each
OS. I don't think there's any need to pull the full information into
libvirt - this library cole is writing is actaully standalone and
independnat of any particular tool. What we really need to figure
out is how to map/cross-reference there data where needed.
