I wanted to use VB because I have been using it since forever and I have
a couple of existing VMs that I want to keep using  (as well as some
management scripts I've written). For the F20 install, it's just
temporary, so I decided to try just doing one in KVM, and that seems to
be working so far.

At some point I'd like to move away from depending on Oracle, so I may
look into what it would take to convert a Windows VM under VirtualBox to
running under KVM/libvirt instead.
