I guess the question is how much such an interface buys you compared to 
lets say virt-manager?
If you only have a hand full of virtual machines then using virt-manager is 
probably easier then setting up any of these cloud tools and if you have 
more then a hand full of guests then many of the functions become redundant 
as you'll need a dedicated monitoring solution like Zabbix anyway so all 
those nifty graphs become pointless.

BTW what happened to Red Hats RHEV-M System? They wanted to release an 
open-source version of that a while ago. Does anyone know what the status 
of that is?
