Sure, but this only migrates the data - not the processes/etc.  If
you're tweaking config files it would be nice to be able to step
through everything as you fix them.

When you have an image that just-works and you're tweaking it the lack
of console usually isn't a big thing.  If you're setting up a new
image from scratch it can be a bit of a pain when it doesn't boot.
