virsh?

Hmmm. Looking at http://linux.die.net/man/1/virsh, too bad they called 
it 'virsh'. Seems like it should be 'virctl'. As it stands, it sounds 
like a bash/sh replacement optimized for use in virtual environments.

I see http://www.libvirt.org/

Anyone got a link to what this beastie is, why it matters, and why I 
should care? I get there are many virtual environments out there - is 
there a nice introductory overview for the point at which virsh enters 
one's worldview?

What are you using now / what's attracting you to look at this further? 
(i.e. If something's attracting you it's probably something that might 
attract me to look further into, too.)
