  Actually, in 0.1.3 it might work (though not really recommended as
you explained for security reasons). If if allow remote xend HTTP access
and use virConnectOpen("http://remote_host:8000/") this may work, I say
may because I didn't tested it specifically, as Daniel pointed out it doesn't
really feel right to promote unauthenticated remote access.
