	Cool, be careful with the QEMU driver, though.

	i.e. you can have a situation where one driver is used for domains, and
the QEMU driver is used for networks. Or, indeed, the QEMU driver might
be used for both.

	We probably want a networkPrivate pointer which will also contain the
qemuPrivate data and the driver will always prefer networkPrivate if it
is non-NULL. Something like that.
