[Mono-list] Suggestion: Mono 1.2.6 / openSUSE 10.3 VMware Image-SCSI instead of IDE

If you install VMware Server (or even Player, I think), it comes with:
vmware-vdiskmanager.exe, which I believe can convert IDE disks to SCSI. If
you do that manually, you need to change the vmx file to point to the SCSI
disk instead of IDE.
Does SCSI support sound like a feature request for Kiwi/qemu-img, given its
high level goals?
