Excellent :-)

For QMP commands, my recommendation is that libvirt wait for a command to appear 
in qapi-schema.json.  Note that we can add commands to qapi-schema.json without 
actually implementing them yet (by setting gen=False).

For new devices, we could come up with a similar mechanism if that's desirable.
