Ah ok.

I'll try work on this next week.

There's no need to wait if you're interested and have the time to work 
on this part. The pve-storage part itself can actually be worked on 
already, and the cases we have now could be converted. 

New cases can be added later. The code I'm working on is an independent 
tool which could then be integrated into the storage import/export API 
after that API has been introduced.
