virt-manager is already either in the Ubuntu repos, or very close to being 
included in them. There was an open launchpad ticket to get it included, but 
I don't have a reference handy -- I think Kristian was actually cc'd on it 
though, so maybe he can provide the pointer (should also be in the list 
archives or locateable via your friendly neighborhood google). 

I use virt-manager + kvm for most of my guest OS needs these days. Finally got 
a new laptop with hardware virt support and enough RAM. :)
