The problem we discussed is that the packages with most linux
distributions are *not* the CogVM yet (rightfully so).  So we are trying
to address the issue of "get vm from packages, get image from

If that's a smaller issue than we should worry about... as in, everyone
who would be downloading 4.3 is smart enough to also pick up the CogVM
as well, then maybe we can just blast forward.  Thoughts?
