Is the only way to get a VM into a Desktop Pool, to deploy them from a template?

Virtual Center 2.5, ESX 3.5

I have several existing VM guests

(Windows XP) that I made back before we started using VirtualCenter. To enable them to be managed by the VDI broker, I can

add them as "Individual Desktops", but I would like them in a Desktop Pool instead. Is there a way to add them to a "Desktop Pool" without having to generate all fresh VMs from a template?

If you are using VDM 2.1 you may be able to use the import export feature to accomplish this goal. There are also some powershell scripts out there that create and add desktops to pools so you may able to borrow some of that code to accomplish this as well.
