XCP: xe vm-import should be able to import xva from web instead of just file name.
# xe vm-import filename="http://a.com/b.xva" sr-uuid=blah
This will save time to download file locally and import. It will also allow to have large repo of templates available for worldwide use.
Are any xapi guys coming to the hackathon? This might be a fun project to tackle there.

Mike - is it worth our spending some time together thrashing out a list of expected work items for this one, which we could publish here or elsewhere?
Mike McClurg commented
I think this is a pretty good idea. Might be a good holiday hacking project for someone.
