I'm wary of listing hypervisor options that are poorly supported in the app,
for example I assume the new VM wizard doesn't work for openvz and may even
blow up in spectacular ways or create nonfunctional VMs.

At the very least major functionality that isn't implemented should show an
error message to that effect.

Another option might be to allow entering a manual URI in the connection
wizard, which is a bit more discoverable than the command line.
