I'm CCing this on the libguestfs mailing list so others can use it.

Assuming you're using '-o rhev' mode, which I guess you must be, you
will need to look in the Export Storage Domain directory after the
run.  There will be a directory in there called something like

  //esd_server/mountpoint/<UUID>/master/vms/<VM_UUID>/

which will contain the OVF file (<VM_UUID>.ovf)

And that is the file you can edit.  Make sure you keep the file
ownership as 36:36 (I think vdsm:vdsm), else oVirt won't be able to
read the file after you have edited it.
