Nice pointer.  That script does some of what I use oz for, but oz helps
me with libvirt XML creation.  And it has a manpage :-)

Do you see any problem including Oz in Debian?  The tools look
complementary, and Oz provide some value to me.  I've added a pointer
to the virt-install and virt-builder tools to the Oz package
description now.

I'll wait a few days for further comments, and then I plan to upload
into NEW.  Hopefully my Oz patch to support Debian 8 Jessie will be
merged by then too.
