I've now reviewed the series, and have some serious design questions
about what we want to be doing in the last few patches (probably best by
adding new flags in libvirt.in.h, affecting all of create, revert, and
delete, in order to do some fused operations).

Not covered in those reviews, but related to this series - we need a
patch to virsh snapshot-create-as to make it easy to specify that we
want an external checkpoint; maybe by copying after --diskspec,
something like --memspec snapshot=external,file=/path/to/file
