[Xen-users] XCP 1.5BETA template/snapshot creation

According to 'xe help snapshot-clone', this is the command used to
create a new template.  Executing the command with the UUID of an
existing VM and a new-name-label parameter creates a new VM -- not a
template or even a snapshot.

I can convert this VM to a template by using 'xe vm-param-set' with a
'uuid=' selector and 'is-a-template=true', but I'm not sure this is
the correct behavior, either.

Frmm reading the help descriptios, this may be an unintended feature
since I was able to snapshot-clone a VM without executing 'xe
vm-snapshot' first to create a snapshot.  At this point I have no
snaphots listed in 'xe snapshot-list' and my snapshot-ted VM is a
template in 'xe template-list'.
