I forgot this one: I'll try to come up with working code today.  

Btw., I installed a VM Windows 7 for the first time in KVM and it works
nicely.  Given that VMware Server seems not to work anymore with newer
kernels (2.6.34++) without a noticable amount of hand wringing, and
given that VMware doesn't seem to be interested in updating the Server
any longer, I guess I'll go along with KVM more often in future.
