Well, that was going to be my next question -- can we rename it?
I like "ovirt-agent", but almost anything other than vdsm will be
nicer :)

Indeed. In addition to not being descriptive or helpful, "vdsm" rhymes /
sounds like (especially if said quickly) something we shouldn't
talk about in a professional setting. This may only be true for
native English speakers, and I believe "vdsm" originated in Israel.
It's not a label that would have originated in the US due to it
not being "work-friendly."

That awkwardness aside, ... "ovirt-agent" will be better for marketing,
Google searches, etc.
