Why not? I thought one can specify that with the qmp command?

I still think we should use internal snapshots. That live merge/commit
proposal sound like a bad idea to me.

I just though we can use external snapshots when there is no other
way to do it.

We can even disable 'remove snapshot' support for that case (simply do not allow
to remove intermediate snapshots)?
