It's intentionally a question :-)

The virAuthGetUsername is demanding that I pass a non-null hostname
here.  I don't have a non-null hostname.  conn->uri->server is the
closest thing, but in the test driver that would always be NULL (it
might be non-NULL if visiting the test driver via the remote driver,
but this code is on the wrong side of the connection).

However this does not particularly matter.  virAuthGetUsername just
uses in a message for the user.

v2 patch coming up shortly.
