  Right, this makes sense, we need to add the check too in the python accessor
but that's generated code (libvirt_virDomainSetMemory in libvirt-py.c) so
I will keep this as a TODO, until we desactivate the automatic bindings
generation (or I find a good way to automatically patch the generated bindings
when the generator is run).
  Applied and commited to CVS,

  thanks a lot !
