[Qemu-devel] [qemu-img] support for XVA

I'm thinking if support for XVA files could be added to qemu-img
The file-format is well known (it's just a tar archive) and there are scripts
that are able to convert an XVA file to a RAW image. (ie:

Running these script on their own is very time consuming, as you have to
extract the XVA, convert any disk image from "single chunks" to a raw image
and then use qemu-img to convert from raw to qcow.

Maybe a native support will be able to skip some steps. (like the
conversion from
"single chunks" to raw and raw to qcow2)
