If you give me access (or a copy of ESX), I'll see what I can do since
I've been hacking at the VMware support in libvirt lately. For that
matter if you've got access to a copy of VMware Fusion as well that'd
be awesome so that I can test the changes I'm making instead of
relying on others to test. *hint any VMware people following the list*
