Cool! Sounds good.

Following existing convention should be sufficient. Add cache as a
VirtualDisk __init__ parameter, setup a simple set_*/get_* property, and
if it's present, encorporate it the xml in get_config_xml.

You could also add some validation tests in tests/validation.py.

Looks good to me. Please be sure to include documentation in
man/en/virt-install.pod (don't worry about actually generating the man
page).

Thanks,
