Just one thing, the Cargo.toml includes a version under which the crate would be

itself, i.e. when releasing libguestfs-x.y.z, we publish guestfs-rs-x.y.z to
crates.io.

Speaking of naming: it seems like libraries that interface/wrap a
foreign C/C++/etc library are usually called foo-sys -- so should our
binding be named guestfs-sys?


So you've seen my RFC? =)

Just to guestfs-sys would be a crate that does only two things:

1) exposes the C functions using `extern`

2) links to the library

And then another crate (e.g. guestfs) would expose the higher-level, safe,
hopefully idiomatic API.  More information (reasoning etc.) see:
