Re: [libvirt] Request to rename 'destroy' to something milder.

Hi Kashyap,
I remember we were talking about this on IRC and I know it could make
confusion and first time I've been using the destroy command of virsh I
remember I've been asking somebody the same thing.

The issue is that this command exists in virsh/libvirt for a really long
and I don't know whether it could be easy to change it. I guess we
should introduce a new command 'poweroff' with backwards compatibility
to 'destroy' but changing destroy functionality is not the right thing.
