[PC-BSD Testing] Idea about VM downloads and OVF

I noticed there are VirtualBox and VMware downloads for RC3. It might be 
possible to unify them and distribute an OVF 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Virtualization_Format) file instead 
that bundles the disk, settings etc. into a single file that can be 
imported into VirtualBox, VMware, Xen etc. Using the disk image from 
VMware is currently a bit tricky because you have to create a new VM 
then discard the disk it just created.
