It'd be great if we can document in ovirt.org somewhere what features are
going to be available in 4.1 DC.
I'm aware of qcow2v3, libgfapi, copy via HSM and discard. io=native
everywhere is a EL7.3 feature, could be coupled with the DC level - not

I hope we can also increase the lease metadata space, but that's possibly
not a 4.1 goal.
