Don't know if this counts as "help" but since I've got a 5.0ESXi (free 
versio, the vSphere Hypervisor) system , I'd be definitely interested in 
testing this out, provided that the package works also on the free 
vShpere Hypervisor.

I do not speak French, but I can see that the package seems to rely on 
having vCenter available; I don't since this is a free vmware offering. 
I do have VMWare vSphere client installed though, can I accomplish 
configuration with it (not a esxi expert here)?
