I'm not sure the time-schedule of the ruby and php bindings maintainers,
but ideally, ALL libvirt API should eventually have exposure in each
language binding.

In the meantime, if you can fork out to a shell, you can use 'virsh'
from within your language of choice to drive the bindings.

Also, it might help to say WHAT you hope to do with qemu-agent-command -
that is an explicitly unsupported interface, and if you find yourself
having to use it, it means we have a hole in libvirt proper, where we
should expose a supported API to get at the same task without going
through the backdoor.  (As past examples, we added virDomainSetTime
because people were previously having to use the agent's back door.)
