Thank you :-)

Since this patch adds a code that loops over this array to close each
IMedium instance it's self-documenting so no there's need for code
comments here.

I intentionally tried to stay away from touching the snapshot related
functions even though it seems that they could share some code. Since
I've been working on this on and off between projects at work, at
initial stages it seemed like a couple of lines of code "here and
there" would let me set/change vbox storage controller models via
libvirtxml. Unfortunately, as I dug deeper and tested all sorts of
combinations more bugs (even in master branch) seemed to pop out and
the series grew to be much bigger than I originally intended. However,
since I'll have to reorganize the commits for V2 anyway, I'll take a
look at those functions and see what I can do.
