The libvirt.conf file is providing configuration for the
libvirt.so client library. I'm not convinced we should
use that same configuration file for the libvirt-admin.so
library. Although it is also a client, it is essentially
a completely separate library since it is speaking a
different protocol and is targetted at different users.

So I think we should have a libvirt-admin.conf file for
the libvirt-admin.so client library.
