I have read the virt-sparsify code,

it's simply read the source disk, and create a new one sparse. (vm offline)

So , you can do the same thing with "move disk" option from proxmox,

or "qemu-img convert "

if you want to do it online, you can use virtio-scsi + discard, and do a "fstrim"
inside your guest.

Is there any chance of proxmox doing a libguestfs-tools package? the 
Debian one won't install due to package dependencies. I'd really like it 
for the "virt-sparsify" command: 


really useful for guest images where the "sparseness" has become 
fragmented leading to unnecessary image bloat.
