Would it be possible to add the ability to select the datastore when cloning an image? This would be extremely helpful (especially when the RBD driver is implemented) to allow multiple storage pools and clone/copy to and from them.

We didn't have this initially to prevent cloning images from datastores with different backends (e.g. moving from iSCSI to VMware vmfs), as this would require intermediate converstions...
However, it the target and source DS are of the same time, a clone operation should work.
I am moving this to feature, and initially assigning this to 4.0. If the above strategy is doable, I think we can have it ready...
