Indeed much needed for various use cases from my talks in various events.
People would often ask me about managing a 1-2 hosts setup and Kimchi fits
right in and I'll be happy to demo it once I have the opportunity.

I agree keeping user experience and interoperability are important
to make it a valuable member of the oVirt ecosystem. This should
allow Kimchi users to grow their setups on the one hand, while test
a specific VM locally using Kimchy on the other hand.
So +1 from me, as long as we make sure users can benefit both projects
together without needing to re-create their guests.
