sorry, I did understand it the other way round.

i do not have the power to decide anything about that, but i wouldn't be
surprised if the people in charge are not in favour of using webspace on
cdimage.d.o for such highly specialised systems.

i have no clue about the internals of vmware filesystemimages, but it
would be definitely nice to add it as a binary image typo to
live-helper. i'll look into it at a later point.

(the usb images of live-helper, which are technically identical to a hd
image, can be used as a hd image in qemu)
