In any case, even if it was this easy (other seem to report otherwise), it's
more steps than an educator should have to perform. The idea is that we can
provide them with prepackaged, no extra-fluff-needed executables, *as well*
as in raw image formats.

Moreover, VMDK files are (IIRC) hard to generate programmatically, whereas
COW/QEMU images can be generated easilly as part of a build script.
