I think there's valid reasons for both suggested APIs. 

I'd suggest a slight variation on your original API, instead of:

+        logPrio = virLogParseDefaultPriority(debugEnv);
+        virLogSetDefaultPriority(logPrio);

Just have a 'virLogSetDefaultPriorityFromString(char *str)', 
eg so it'd parse the string and then call virLogSetDefaultPriority 
for you.

Also then having a virLogSetFromEnv() method which uses getenv to
fetch the vars and then calls the virLogSet... methods
