Well, how would you then limit the outputs to 1?  Having said that, I
have no idea why we started adding heads="1" automatically and playing
with different changes, we have another bug in the parsing/formatting
code.  You'll also won't be able to migrate from older libvirt with
heads='1' to newer ones.  I haven't realized that.  I'm thinking about
reverting the change in libvirt or even using heads > 1.  Although
that won't migrate either.  So the only other thing that we can do is
to introduce new parameter, like maxHeads.  The sound you just heard
is me slapping my face because again there will multiple parameters
meaning similar things...
