Soren and others,

oVirt or Enomalism as a remote VM manager would be absolutely fantastic.

Currently, oVirt is set up so that you put it on its own guest VM,
though "Brazen" (Dinkel?) says it will not always be so.

Enomalism is written in Python and uses MySQL for something, I don't
know EXACTLY what. oVirt uses Ruby on Rails.

Beyond dependencies, features need to be compared. For example, Will
migration/load balancing be available in these software packages?
"Beholder" on #enomalism implied that oVirt and "E" have similar but
different goals. We'll have to see.

In any case, getting a graphical VM manager would be a great thing to
have integrated with Ubuntu. I know E has a .deb package on their
site, so it might not be hard to get them put in the repos.
