what I'm going to do and what we most interested in is,

 - external guest fish script.
 - homedir .ssh directroy 
   (It's better if virt-sysprep can prepare a new key for copied guest.)
 - /var/run files
 - modify file system's UUID to be an unique.

Other than that, I think following should be removed..
 - .bash_history file
 - delete user accounts (should be optional??)
 - add/modify user accounts(optional)

What do you think Rich?
