A while ago I started to refactor some obviously ESX specific stuff
out of the VMX code into a callback mechanism.

One thing I'm going to change is the product version handling.

There should be no major problem left in the VMX code that could stop
it from being moved to src/util/.

As you say you have some basic stuff working now, maybe it's a good
idea that you show you code here for an initial review and let me do
the refactoring once I can see how you use the VMX code.
