I get that now. He is correct in that his snapshots are approximately 
what the guests look like when the power is yanked. Whether or not those 
snapshots are usable is still a problem. It's not just legacy 
applications and operating systems. If you try this with MongoDB for 
example you are guaranteed to have non-working databases in your snapshots.
