the vimage stuff for 7 was considered too green for inclusion.
While I had hoped we coudl add it later (to 7.1 or 7.2) it looks like
the ABI changes would make that hard. We were a little late in requesting 
pad bytes for structures that might have allowed it.
it's still being developed and you can
usually get a recent snapshot from http://imunes.tel.fer.hr/virtnet/
(the one there now is only 4 days old).
