Why cloud-kvm.jar? As KVM is also a plugin shouldn't it be named 
consistently like cloud-plugin-netapp.jar, cloud-plugin-f5.jar and 

Something like:
* cloud-plugin-kvm.jar
* cloud-plugin-hypervisor-kvm.jar

I think the second name could be a bit long, but since most of the stuff 
goes automated for building classpaths I wouldn't mind.
