mmm, good point.

Personnaly, for my usage, I prefer to define fleecing storage in backup
job. (as we only define 1 backup storage in 1 job, and my problem to
solve is the slow backup storage).

But Maybe, indeed, some users would like to choose "use same storage
than disk" , or choose a specific fleecing storage for a specific vm.
So, maybe add an extra override option in vm options or directly on
disk ? I really don't known :)  

Maybe try a simple option on backup job first, then add extra options
at vm level if users want it ?
