This is actually quite a good idea - a oVirt thin client desktop. You
could even add in some basic operations like stop/start/blah, and they
can avoid the web UI completely for day-to-day work.

Basically this is kind of a cross of virt-viewer + vinagre, but talking
to oVirt instead of libvirt. Or you could write a libvirt driver that
talks to oVirt - cf the OpenNebula guys
