We now have a working solution for producing regular .vhd images as part 
of our release process: CBS is now using qemu-img-ev and qemu-kvm-ev 
from the Virt SIG, instead of the versions in CentOS Linux base.  We 
don't need either VirtualBox or changes in Image Factory.

If anyone has access to Hyper-V on Windows and would be willing to test 
two Vagrant images, please let me know.  I received conflicting test 
results from Thomas and Michael, and I'd like to have at least an 
additional test before deciding whether to release them or not.
