Default FYI: major UI changes in virt-manager

I've just pushed a significant UI change to virt-manager. The per-VM details
and console windows are now merged into a single tabbed window. The console
is the primary tab, and overview/details tabs are as before. The goal is to
reduce the number of windows on the desktop because with large numbers of
VMs having two windows per VM was non-scalable. Basically we want at most
the one main window, and then 1 window per hypervisor connection and 1
window per virtual machine.

I expect we'll iterate over this UI change to tweak a few more things before
the next release. In particular wrt to fullscreen mode.

Eventually we'll hook up serial/parallel ports as additional tabs on the
VM window too, so everything's in one place.

Regards,
Daniel.

Snapshots are not an easy thing to provide unless you constrain which kind
of storage a guest is allowed to use. I've no plans to work on this in the
near future because there's more important things which are easier first.

Is actually a great Idea.
