I'm not convinced virsh needs this either:
- What other similar shell logs its errors/debug to a file?
- You generally want to see debug/error messages on stdout/stderr
when debugging something, rather than having to go poking in a
separate log file
e.g. the log won't be much good if I'm doing:
$> ssh markmc at foo virsh --debug 6 list
- Logging stuff to ~/.virsh is not something people will expect -
I'd imagine most people would be surprised to find a log file
- Log rotation, log file size, remote logging, log filtering etc.
are all solved problems ... let's not try and re-solve them
