Hmm, I didn't know we had a VIRSH_DEFAULT_CONNECT_URI - we also
have LIBVIRT_DEFAULT_CONNECT_URI, which applies to any libvirt
app. We also already have a $HOME/.libvirt/libvirt.conf for
configuring client apps. I think it'd be better to extend that
existing config file so the defaults affect all apsp (eg virt-top,
virt-install, etc) - chances are if you want to change one, you
want to change them all. And to deprecate usage of VIRSH_DEFAULT_CONNECT_URI
too while we're at it.
