  Shall I assume it is useful?

  I was expecting someone to ask why I was getting a list of VM's separately 
from the section that did the shutdown...  I did that because my script does 
an action on either a default list of VM's (stop/shutdown uses list of 
active VM's, start uses list in /etc/xen/auto, reboot uses list in 
/etc/xen/reboot) or the list from the command line.  I link vm-stop and 
vm-start to vm-reboot and check $0 when it runs.

  Should we expand the script and include the other options?  Maybe rename 
it to virt-start, virt-stop, virt-reboot?  (to complement virt-install)  Or, 
call it virt-cntl and have options like --reboot, --stop & --start?
