This option is not safe, in fact my intention was to hide it from the
option list since it's really only there to facilitate command line
testing of virt-clone. I've pushed an upstream commit to hide this option:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git?p=python-virtinst.git;a=commit;h=9975f310c572d964060fd2610644225601111477

It doesn't do any of the things you want, it just disabled the check
that throws an error if the guest is running. I recommend you not use
this option.

Cloning using snapshotting is great idea, but we haven't implemented an
option for that yet.

Thanks,
Cole
