I am largely, vehemently against webmin or any other gui tools for system
administration, including the X11 tools..

And, to be honest, it pisses me off that virt-install is broken, but
virt-manager can create a new VM for me just fine, even though it hangs on
granular package selection..

gui tools don't script so easily, #!/bin/bash is my favorite tool.

And webmin is a big hairy security hole.

It was useful for a moment though.
