I don't claim it's pretty.  It affects only a few places, though, and
I tried to make it as invisible as I could.  I'm open to any ideas on
how to solve the problem more cleanly.

And the problem is real: people want to play with upstream libvirt on
RHEL, but it doesn't work.  Whether my cure is better or worse than
the disease is open for debate, that's why I posted.
