How are we supposed to know what's in the public API and what isn't? Is
it automatically any file ever used by virt-manager?

It seems to me like everything should be moved wholesale into a new
directory, and anything legacy left in place (forwarded on to the new
implementation if needed). It doesn't seem feasible to maintain code
to provide an unspecified API forever!

What name do you want for the internal util file?
