Provide a name when instantiating a template and use an index for multiple instances
From Gary S. Cuozzo:
When you instantiate a template via the templates tab, you end up with vm's which are just named according to the vmid. When you create a new vm using the virtual machines tab, you are able to provide a name to the vm and select a template. For instantiating via the templates tab, I think it would be nice to have a feature where the vm could get named according to the template name with an ordinal or some other index to avoid name clashes when multiple vm's are instantiated from a single template. For example, a template named "http_server" could get instantiated as "http-1", "http-2", etc.
