virt-manager is too stupid to be permitted to live outside of an
intensive care unit. It completely mishandles configuration options
that are easily available from the command line, such as the use of
mutliple disk drives at image setup time, and has very poor handling
of randomized NIC configurations, and it behaves extremely poorly over
remote X connections. It also has no clue and little capability to
properly handle pair-bonded connections for high reliability upstream

RHEV may address its lacks, but lord, it's not good.
