Sorry for the delay in reviewing this patch. It all looks alot better
now, and pretty close to ready for commit.

There is just one question I have though - when the driver initially
starts up, there does not seem to be any code to populate the list 
of existing running VMs. ie, nothing loads data into driver->domains
So it only appears to remember domains you've started  via libvirt
since opening the connection. 

My inclination at this point is to merge the driver and then we can do 
incremental patches to fix further problems as they arise.
