Subject Re: cloudstack features wish-list

Disclaimer: I'm rather new to cloudstack.

I think some nice to have features for CloudStack to have are:

- Idempotent requests like amazon aws [1] : " When you launch an
instance through the command line tools or API, you can optionally
provide a client token. If timeouts or connection errors occur, you
can repeat the request and be sure you haven't launched more instances
than you intended."

- batch operations - issue status checks, create virtual machine calls
for a group, not just individual calls. This creates the possibility
to launch a few hundred VM's and monitor their progress without making
too requests for each one. (also implemented by Amazon AWS)

set up web pages that pull this data from the bug db dynamically.  That could be used to create
something like the wiki page you set up.
