> In some cases the template process can be exhaustive and wasteful.  Templates make sense
for large scale  deployments of a common image but sometimes there is a need to make one or
two clones of a system.  The process of creating a template, offloading to secondary storage,
then loading it _back_ onto primary only to make one or two copies of an instance seems unnecessary
if there was simply an ability clone either directly on primary storage using a writable snapshot
feature or offloading to secondary storage temporarily then removing the data once the copy
has been made (similar to how volumes are imported).
