Scripting Virtual Server to add machines?

Is it possible to create a script that will create/add a whole set of virtual machines on to an instance of Virtual Server rather than running through the 'add machine' function in Virtual Server 2005 R2?

We are currently going through a virtualisation implementation and are having to move machines around quite a bit.

Any ideas?

Set objVS = CreateObject("VirtualServer.Application")
errReturn = objVS.CreateVirtualMachine("Scripted Machine", _
    "C:\Scripts\Shared Virtual Machines\Scripted")
