Does anyone use the FreeBSD VM qcow2 images

I'm talking about the images available here:

Since mkimg(1) in head/ and stable/10 supports VMDK and VHD formats,
I would prefer to remove the need to use qemu-img to generate the VM

This would mean that the qcow2 format would no longer be produced.

If you are using the qcow2 format, please reply off-list.  If the qcow2
format is being widely used, they will continue to be produced.  If not,
they'll go away, and we'll have raw, VMDK, and VHD formats.
