This illustrates the reason why we should not have the same libvirt.conf
file used by both libvirt.so and libvirt-admin.so. The URIs you need to
pass to libvirt-admin.so are a different scheme from the URIs you need
to pass to libvirt.so. So we don't want the same uri_aliases conf parameter
mixing up 2 different sets of URIs. So we definitely need a separate
libvirt-admin.conf file
