  the libvirt.h part looks just fine at this point for me.
I'm just wondering a bit about some of the naming "node driver"
are devkit and Hal really "node drivers", then sound more like
"device watcher".
  Maybe the error file should state
then the names we pick for the internal symbols can be changed

  We will need to augment the terminology section at some point
but I'm not sure what's the best way to describe those new internal
APIs, "Node driver" doesn't really fit IMHO, "Device watcher" is a bit
better but doesn't feel great either.
