/etc/libvirt/qemu/** is _not_ intended to be directly edited by hand. 
Just as /etc/sudoers is supposed to be edited only by visudo, files 
under that directory should be edited with "virsh edit", "virsh 
net-edit", or other libvirt-aware mechanisms.

any way... arguably it doesn't matter much where they happen to be stored.
