+1 to the concept.

Same question as other emails: what release are you thinking for this?
 Is someone taking this work on?

I pulled out your question on the design page, and have some thoughts:

> Should this be at a template level or account level or VM level??

Isn't this something that's more infrastructure centric?  i.e.: linked
clone functionality is provided by the hypervisor, and really is an
operator decision (not a user decision).  Should the configuration
reflect that, instead of leaking the infra implementation details to
the end user?
