Hi Cole,

The only package close to that is python-libguestfs.  I installed it,
restarted libvirt, fired up some VMs (after changing permissions) but
didn't see any icons.  Is the image recognition done upon libvirt
startup or upon VM startup?  I'll have to recheck permissions because
they get overwritten eventually (leaving my regular user without
access)...don't know if that's the problem.

Just curious:  Isn't it more easier to create the icons based on the OS
type (as specified by --os-type) instead of inspecting the actual images
& having to install all these extra packages?
