Yeah, I agree with moving this around (virt-tools sounds good).

Originally this list was started back when we just wanted a list for 
various systems management projects that our (Red Hat) group created, 
not really even being sure which ones would be ones we'd be spending 
time on (hence not wanting to pick a more specific name).  Then it 
became largely cobbler+virt-manager, then lots of other virt tools came 
along, and cobbler migrated to it's own list because it wasn't all virt 
related, so we're left with pretty much the assorted virt tools here.

This list becoming the hub for discussions around virt tooling seems to 
be good, and folks can come there with new virt ideas as well.

Make it so, #1?
