I've been testing this out for real today

 - IPv6 works correctly
 - Once I generated the client & server certs the TLS stuff was working
   pretty much without issue. Though we could do with printing out some
   clearer stuff in the scenario where user typos on cert/key path names
   as the current stuff is a littel obscure.
 - I've been testing with the QEMU driver and hit a few problems with
   the fact that qemuinternal.c will grab the URIs containing hostnames
   in the virConnectOpen call. So qemu was getting the connection before
   remote driver had a chance. Should be simply to path qemu_internal
   to ignore URIs with a hostname set.

This last point was in turn killing virt-manager, with a hack workaround
it seems virt-manager more or less works. Well with obvious exception of
places where virt-manager uses local state outside the libvirt APIs, but
that's another story :-)
