So since I don't have a virtuozzo setup, the only way to test this is to use
the fake URL magic. So I did for example:

virt-manager --connect

But when I launch the new VM wizard like that, only the 'container' option is
available, but the wizard is stuck in that state and can't progress.

I think the example capabilities XML tests/capabilities-xml/vz.xml should be
expanded to list both container and VM install options. Please send a patch
for that.

I suspect the UI will need some tweaking but I can't give specifics until I
have something to play with a bit. But I think the first screen should be
working similar to the xen UI for picking between paravirt and fullvirt. You
can use a fake xen URL to play with it (adjust paths for your virt-manager dir):


Also have this patch stick to just the ui/create.ui and virtManager/create.py
changes. If you combine the rest of the changes from this patch with patch #2
and move it to the beginning of the series I can apply it independently
