Rather than removing localfs right away how about we add an explicit config parameter to control behaviour vfs_impl=auto|guestfs|localfs where auto == try libguestfs, fallback to localfs guestfs == try libguestfs, error otherwise localfs == try localfs, error otherwise Currently we do 'auto' behaviour but in Kilo we could make 'guestfs' be the default, so there is no fallback. That way distros will quickly see if they have a problem, but still have option to reconfigure to use localfs if they need to.
