Yes, that would be nice. There's a new upstream virt-manager out which
I'll package up once libvirt 0.4.5 has stabilized a bit but from what I
saw in hg it doesn't support this functionality either. 
Adding this wouldn't be too hard since virt-image basically is the
commandline version of what you describe above.
