What is the plan for uploading tarballs?

It seems that you can upload *.tar.gz machine images into glance using uec-publish-tarball (now cloud-publish-tarball) and they can be booted without difficulty. But 'nova image-show' will then display them with no name making that feature useless. unpacks the tarball and uses the glance api to upload the individual pieces giving them names that will be displayed, but that seems unnecessarily cumbersome. It would be nice if the glance cli had a way to upload such a bundle and give it a name. Failing that, it would be nice if glance defaulted the case of 'name=Null' to some other metadata info, perhaps the leaf of the image_location. Am I missing something?
