why not just use the backup UI to schedule backups daily? you can drive it manually too via shell... have a look for vzdump in the wiki or man pages.

I also would like to have this feature for easy start of a KVM rather that going through the whole install process of Windows for example when doing full KVM. Or incase I corrupt the KVM, I want to have a fresh point to go back to and just use the mirror image that I created after the install of the Full KVM was done.
