That doesn't make a difference. Whether you virt-install to file or partition
you end up with xvda'd disks.

Well, they do work quite well. I did a lot of installs with virt-install and
kickstart. A pleasure. If you don't mind ending up with xvda it's a good way.
Depends on your needs. I need customized installations for webhosting that
have quite a few additional programs installed and preconfigured and going
with template disks is the much easier way then. And then it pays to be able
to access the disks anytime with a simple mount.
