I'd suggest that CLI syntax when selecting VM range, e.g.:
onevm delete 78..92

is improved by allowing additional symbols, such as the dash:
onevm delete 78-92

and the use of spaces around the dash:
onevm delete 78 - 92

The current syntax {..} (two points) is not very intuitive and probably requires reading the manual. I've personally tried almost everything, even {...} (three dots) before finally giving up and consulting the manual.
