Well, I guess its guaranteed if we say that it is since we create list
of devices by parsing xml..

However, there is still the issue of this API not being convenient for
app if it takes a GVirConfigDomainGraphics *. They'll have to get the
GVirConfigDomain pointer and get list of devices and and find the
graphics device themselves while most domains have just one graphics
device typically.
