So this exposes that qemu + libvirt have the required support to use OVMF.

The other bit virt-manager would like is to know the paths to the OVMF
binaries. Preferably with some way to tell if they actually exist on disk,
which might just be hiding them from the XML if they aren't found, or an extra
XML property.

As you mentioned in the virt-tools-list email, you probably don't need to
expose the vars template file path, and just the OVMF binary path.

Thoughts on what the XML might look like? Doesn't seem like there's any
existing precedence in domcapabilities schema

Thanks,
Cole
