This all looks good so far, but I think there's still something missing. 
>From what I see here, I don't think the cobbler system is  being created 
in the reprovisioning case. Right the cobbler system is created in 
taskomatic in the create_vm action, but this won't be run in the 
reprovisioning case. It's not completely obvious how we'd resolve this, 
but we need to create and/or modify the cobbler system before restarting 
the VM.

Darryl -- from the cobbler point of view, what action is required when a 
cobbler profile is changed for a system -- do we just edit the cobbler 
system? i.e. retrieve it by name (UUID), and modify, or do we have to 
delete it and recreate one?

In any case, we'll need an explicit taskomatic task to be run before 
restarting the VM -- and this needs to happen any time the provisioning 
information is changed -- but it should probably not happen when we're 
not reprovisioning.
