How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
engine-image-uploader could not do recursive uploads from storage

Expected results:
do recursive uploads

Additional info:
* easy to "restore" VMs either from a different storage domain or from your storage domain if you lost DB and your DB backup is too old and does not know about newly created/used VMs

it would be also nice if engine-image-uploader could "scan" local storage. example:
* multiple VMs on local storage with 'internal layout' but I do not want to upload all of them. and I'm lazy to parse meta files to discover which uuid-based files refers to which VM. it would be nice if engine-image-upload could "scan" this and tell me the names or some other info, so i could upload only specific VM(s) without telling engine-image-upload specific path. thus, make it human friendly :)

I'm closing this as our approach to fixing this is via:
RegisterDisk (3.2) and future work on import existing data domain / report orphan disks/vms on existing data domain (for example, bug 716511)
