Thierry, we could propose libguestfs patch to trunk, but have concerns with
it. First there is no libguestfs package for ubuntu and libguestfs people
still looking for ubuntu mantainer (http://libguestfs.org/FAQ.html#binaries).
We could create PPA if it will be enough for now, but for next openstack
release official packages of libfuestfs will be necessary.  Next one is
architectural: should we add new flag for choosing NBD/libguestfs?
