VM Snapshot

It would be great to have the ability to take snapshots of a VM at different points in time. I can think of at least 2 use cases for this:

 

1) install an OS, take a snapshot, and treat it as a kind of "base install" so if you wanted to "reformat" you can reload the base snapshot without having to go through the entire install process again

2) If you're doing some complex setups that have a high chance of breaking things, take a snapshot, make your changes, and if things go wrong just roll back to the snapshot you made to revert all changes instantly

 

I think this would be extremely useful and is offered by programs like virtualbox. I'm not sure if its any more complicated than just creating a copy of the vdisk img and saving to some specified share location?
