Thanks for looking into this.

The above should work on Xen too ...
The network functions currently use the QEMU server. That's a strange
historical artifact that should be removed (or perhaps has been by Dan's
patches - I have yet to check them in detail).

A lot of these are Xen-specific features. Some may one day be supported
by kvm when it gets proper, working SMP support. I notice they got an
SMP guest to boot a couple of weeks ago. However virConnectGetType
should work on QEMU.
