It's just because that bit hasn't been written yet. However all the
infrastructure is now in place (capabilities, remote, storage API) so
it will work. I think Cole was working on it.

Historically there wer several problems

- It poked in /proc to determine what HV / guests were supported.
THis is now fixed since we use the capabilities APIs
- It accesses local filesystem to create disk images. This can be
fixed by swithcing to use the storage APIs, which I believe Cole
has been looking at
- It downloads kernel/initrd images to local files. This can be fixed
by only allowing PXE for remote hosts, or using storage APIs to find
CD ISO images remotely.

There's probably a few other loose ends to tidy up, but we're pretty close
to being able to suport remote guest creation once the storage APIs are
used by virt-manager

Regards,
Daniel.
