  Looks overall fine to me, the syntactic construct sounds generic
  I would still suggest 2 more changes:
    - in virDomainGraphicsDefParseXML check the values coming from
      the XML, I guess we should accept only "true" and "false"
      and raise an error, otherwise one may pass --fullscreen=foo
      on the command line !
    - drop stdbool.h and use int instead of bool, this doesn't really
      gain anything and causes some troubles (e.g. with CIL)

Also if you could set your mail agent to set a mime-type of text/plain
on the diff or patch attachemnts, that would allow to comment them
in-line, which allows for faster feedback loop in the future.

  thanks :-) !
