It's not a bad idea to build it on Hydra. Hydra already builds a
usb-image / disk-image job [0], so we could add a qemu-image job, too.

I think that updates to the image would have to be handled manually. One
of us could send them a link to the new image and they'd make it
available to their users.

My expectation is that Serveraptor would offer our latest release, and
users would be expected to update their systems, as on bare-metal.
