I create and run multiple virtual Fedora installs which are clones of
each other.  I do not feel it is proper to let Smolt report each
instantiation because the hardware is virtual and identical.  Does
Fedora Project really need those virtual stats?

By the way, the smaller the memory footprint required to support a
graphical environment the better it is for me; i.e. more virtual
machines per box.
