There are 2 issues I have with ImageFactory :
1) it does not solve any problem that isnt already addressed by the
libvirt tools, and is actually limiting in its scope.
2) it needs yet another piece of metadata that is in yet another
differerent file format.

Whatever route we take - there will be some need to integrate with the
tools, and i just feel that the code might be better utilised,
repeatedly shared as well, if we target the libvirt tools instead.
