Hmmm there be dragons.

Really we couldn't get Mozilla plugins to work reliably, without
crashing the browser.  No one seems to know why.

Also, having such a plugin is a potential security hole.  At the very
least, it's an obvious denial of service attack against your browser.

Probably that code should be removed from virt-viewer.  (CC'd and
follow up to gtk-vnc-list).

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
