We don't have a way to restart Virtual Machines right now but you can  
imitate a reboot with this setup:

  * NFS shared images directory
  * Images that hold filesystems use CLONE=no

This way the VM will always use the same image file. Now you can  
shutdown and create machines to imitate a reboot.
