I don't think anyone has tested it as we only bother with vSphere >= 5,
but it should work, assuming the guest is supported.  You shouldn't
need to use virt-p2v, plain virt-v2v should work.

I suggest exporting the guest as an OVA first.  You can do this
manually (File -> Export an OVF Template), but for automating the
process it's probably better to use with VMware's proprietary ovftool:

The whole process is described here:
