Thanks, that was what I was looking for.

I must admit to being confused as to the relationship between redhat, kvm and 
spice. There are separate agents for spice (vdagent) and qemu (qemu-ga)?

Whats the host (qemu) program for sending commands to qemu-ga?

If I wanted, could I build my own qemu-ga and make it available? or would it 
be undesirable from your perspective  to have foreign builds of it floating 
about. Would it be better for me to write my own agent?

What I want to achieve is integrate VSS support into another kvm manager 
(proxmox). I prefer to stick to the platform tools for this sort of thing 
rather than roll my own.
