Snapshots aren't the only thing that will not work. Basically every
other block operation needs to be either checked that it works or it has
to be forbidden too. Namely: blockRebase, blockPull, blockCopy (this
will probably work, if not used as a target), and possibly other I now
can't remember.

In libvirt we actually do want to start using node names. It's the only
way to do some more complex operations.

This paragraph doesn't belong to a commit message.
