The code in this patch is taken from the oVirt Node project. I was
tasked a year ago with providing a large portion of Virt Manager's
functionality but in a text-based version. I used Python to write the
code (so I could borrow logic from Virt Manager) and Newt to write the
user interface portion [1].

To run this code, the user need only invoke the nodeadmin module and
follow the menus to administer domains, storage pools and volumes, and

There is some drift between this code and the current Virt Manager
functionality, which will get fixed after the code's upstream and

Cole and I have talked a few times about factoring out the business
logic in the GUI Virt Manager into code that can be shared between both
it and the TUI version.


[1] - I've also extracted from the UI code a new framework based on Newt
called Newt Syrup [http://newt-syrup.fedorahosted.org] which is
available in Fedora now.
