I like the idea in general, but for me the instance types looks like a feature that is
typical in public clouds, while in private clouds it looks more like a cool extra feature
for special cases. Therefore in my opinion it would be great to keep the old template
solution as well to keep it simple for most users. A template could be an instance type
and an image together. Only the description overlap, and that could be solved.

Subject: [Engine-devel] Instance Types Feature
this is the proposed new feature called instance types:
Long story short - it should basically split the VM template into:
- "hardware profile" called instance types
- "software profile" called image
This should enable to do something like: Create a new "small" VM and
attach a disk with "RHEL + Postgres" installed.
Any comments are more than welcome!
