Following on from the 3 patches I've just sent out, I anticipate a handful
of further patches over the next few days todo the following

 - Split the qemud_server struct into two structs

        - qemud_server to only contain data about client/server sockets
        - qemud_manager to only contain data about VMs & networks

   The conf.c, and driver.c files will need updating to deal with this

 - Re-implement qemudReportError  in terms of virError APIs

 - Change contract of all public methods in qemud/driver.c to match that needed
   by the libvirt src/driver.h API.

 - Move the QEMU related code into src/ dir. This will consist of


 - Remove the legacy QEMU protocol by deleting


At this time, the daemon will be totally generic.

BTW, I'm maintaining this series of patches as a patch queue, with the intent
that we have fully-working code at every step of the re-factoring process,
though at some intermediate stages I'll be doing some horrific things with
the build process ;-)
