I really don't understand your point. Other people are using the KVM
tool for other purposes. For example, the (crazy) simulation guys are
using the tool to launch even more guests on a single host and Ingo
seems to be using the tool to test kernels.

I'm not suggesting we should merge the tool because of my particular
use case. I'm simply saying the problem I personally want to solve
with the KVM tool is broader than what Alexander's script is doing.
That's why I feel it's a pointless project.
