It depends how big of your patch. If it changes current code too much, may not get a chance
to be merged into 4.0 branch. But I think this feature shouldn't be that disruptive, so send
out your patch, the merge window is still open.

We are using the latest libvirt java binding, if it doesn't include the API you want, better
to send a patch libvirt mailing list also. Host script is ok in the current stage.

Which version of qemu-img are you using? Is it included in Ubuntu 12.04?

Yes, We don't need it any more.
