allow the use of nonpackaged utilities to build side-artifacts, like vagrant-fedora images for qemu/vmware...

having ready to roll vagrant images for fedora would be a huge win for rapid testing and adoption of software stacks on emerging fedora distros!

working with Opscode to make that finally happen (awesome!), I don't think
we want that to be a blocker.

Additionally, the conventions for a Vagrant image are significantly
different from what we want for the cloud image. (Root password set to
"vagrant", for example.) So, the plan is to provide those "semi-officially"
from and the Cloud SIG wiki.

As we get easier technology in Koji for making images, we might revisit for
