We are packaging nova in a venv so that we can run some kilo code on top of some cent6 nodes (default python install is 2.6) (additionally we are working on replacing the cent6 nodes with a newer os, but when you have a large number of machines - things take time).  We are using python27 software collections and pretty much everything is working.  But the issue is that libguestfs is not able to be installed in a venv via normal means (pip install).  I would like to make the request that libguestfs get added to pypi.

The following bug has already been created over a year ago [1], and it looks like most of the work on the libguestfs side is already done [2].  It seems something about a complaint of licensing per the bug report.
