We completely need a way to manipulate disk images - eg. resize LVM
partitions, read out data from filesystems nested inside partitions
inside LVM, etc etc.  In other words, a non-broken gparted.

virt-df has much of the machinery required to do this.

Turn it into a library, package it up ...  If only I had the time.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
