I like the idea of making the unsupported qemu-tainted objects explicit 
at every use point rather than hidden behind the import and new() 
hundreds of lines earlier in the file; at any rate, it means when you 
later revisit the file to clean out the unsupported qemu direct use with 
newly added libvirt features, you know every line that needs fixing. 
But I'm not enough of a python coder to know if this is typically done 
anywhere else, so I don't know if my vote counts as a tie-breaker.
