We should instead use the Fog configuration file for this.

I added support to the harness a while ago. This is its output now:

Revert VMs
Use of /etc/plharness/vsphere as a config file is deprecated.
Please use ~/.fog instead
See for format
Connecting to vsphere at qa-vsphere.puppetlabs.lan with credentials for root
Reverting oel-r5-u6-x86-64 to snapshot pe
Spent 4.93 seconds reverting

All that needs to be done now is ensure the ~/.fog file is in puppet and when we re-deploy the coordinators it will be all good. Assigning to Scott since I think may have already puppetized this.
