Although I may have used wrong choice of words - that's what I meant, 
you *can* adapt the resolution for the VM according to your client's
display resolution/geometry. Didn't say Spice will do it automagically.
I've also tested it on Windows XP.

Without spice+qxl support there are very few resolutions available 
within the client

Also, in spite of vdagent installed and running inside RHEL7 beta VM, I 
couldn't get QXL drivers working as well as they do in CentOS 6.
Copy-paste works, but I couldn't get the resolution I wanted.
