ColdFusion Virtual Appliance?

I've spent all week working on a CVS to SVN migration and thankfully it's going really well. I needed to replicate our SVN environment so I installed Linux on a VMWare install on my Windows XP machine. I'm always amazed at how well this works!

Today I was digging around VMWare's appliance 'marketplace' and was surprised there were no ColdFusion images?

Is this something anyone would be interested in? It seems like it would be fairly straightforward to setup a CF version using the developer edition and maybe a Blue Dragon one. (Though I'm not sure of the legalities of doing this - anyone know??)

If you wanted to run a desktop you could even install some of the more popular CF apps - things like BlogCFC, etc.

I've never created a VMWare 'appliance' before but I can't imagine it's that difficult? Please leave a comment if you would be interested in something like this - and if you are from Adobe or New Atlanta I'd be curious about the legalities of using ColdFusion/BlueDragon in a setting like this? I don't want to get in trouble :)
