Oops, sorry! ;-)

(I really should work with python more regularly.)

Thanks for committing this! :-)

Ok, then I'm going to write some tests that use this feature now.
Thanks a lot for making this possible.

Question: I think we should also define a canonical way of
detecting baseimage support. I propose to use:

[ -e /dev/baseimage ]

Because that is very agnostic to details: if for example some cloud
runner also wants to support this in the future, but provides access
to a file instead of a block device, they can symlink that to
/dev/baseimage and this test would still catch that. Using -b would
be suboptimal.

Do you agree?
