I agree but I want to clarify how we intend to proceed about this in
future. I'm fine with 2 or 3 but with this kind of extremely strict
definition of "too new libvirt dep", we'd need to keep on doing this
and before you know it, we'll have lots of these ugly hacks.

I regret having to resort to some sort of poll as well but this is not
a purely objective discussion. I did present arguments but you
maintain that I did not. So let's leave at that, shall we?

I'll just proceed as Dan tell me to. It's his project in the end.
