Except that 'snapshot-create' was invented several releases prior to
'snapshot-create-as', back when snapshots were simple enough that
creating without an xml file was common enough to do without needing a
second command.

We have to keep the older behavior for clients written prior to when
snapshot-create-as was introduced.
