I'm afraid that you're going to break stuff with this series. For
example the patch for the ESX driver breaks opening a read-only
connection as you made esxOpen reject VIR_CONNECT_RO. Yes, the ESX
driver has no means to support a truly read-only connection as you
always need to provide credentials, so one can consider this a bugfix
or a regression depending on the point-of-view.
