I've been saying for a long time that virt-manager should be able to
install a pre-defined set of operating systems.  ie. Instead having to
separately download the ISO or know a URL, virt-manager would know how
to download a boot ISO for a range of OSes, and all the user would
need to do would be to pick "Fedora 14" or "Chrome OS" from a menu.
