We can always regroup later, so for now I left it in the domain group.


Thanks; I've now pushed 17-19.  That leaves 16 and 20 needing a v3 
posting (coming up shortly).  That is, the new APIs are now committed, 
and virsh knows how to use them, but without 16 and 20, no domain 
actually implements the new dxml modifications of save state image yet.
