I suppose that some folks will want to script things in bash, but I truly 
hope that in real production environments that's not what gets used.

In any case it might be useful to have a true CLI that can be scripted 
similar to how virsh works.  We can add it to the list of things to do, 
and of course if someone out there wants to try their hand and doing this, 
we'd love to see some patches :)
