So, this branch removes the vm-info from the computer info, and we'll store it upon registration, this does have a downside, in that you can't switch VMs to the new VM licensing scheme, as we'll never update that value?

The bzr history is ok tho', as I implemented that as a feature after the main work, so I can revert :-)
