Well, it uses ext4 now, but it looks like the image convert fails...

Could you also add XFS support?

I had posted similar changes at lp:~lool/vmbuilder/ext4, but Kees' branch is better in that it selects ext4 by default /depending on the target release/.

I just checked the code about this --part thingy.
I think it needs some rewrite, regarding syntax etc.

If I have the time, I'll come up with something
