Description of problem:
When create a new VM and select import existing disk image, for convenient, it is better to add "Delete Volume" and "Refresh Volume" button when import existing disk image. Like 'Storage' tab in connection details.
The two features are useful when user handle massive images in storage pool.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Virtual Machine Manager 0.9.0
RHEL6.3 minimal installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open virt-manager
2. Copy some exist image to storage pool.
3. Create a guest and select 'import existing disk image'
4. Click 'Browser' to select image
The new image could not be seen in storage pool. User need to reopen virt-manager or click 'Browse Loacl' button to find new image.
And user could only new a Volume, but could not delete a unused volume.

In case of LVM pool one has to go Storage tab in connection and hit refresh there as Browse won't work.
Upstream storagebrowser has refresh and delete vol options now
