I've got a couple of questions about creating images linked to base images:
- `qemu-img commit` commits changes directly to the base image. Is there a way to create a new merged image with the changes so as not to change the original? - I noticed that images refer to their base image using an absolute path. Is there a way to change an image's base image reference? (for example when the base image is renamed / moved to a different directory)

qemu-img convert [-c] <changes-file> -O qcow <new-base-file>

should do what you want.
