I still think virsh can be taught the convenience method. I agree that
the lowlevel libvirt.so entry points don't need convenience, but we have
already established that virsh is perfectly capable of doing 2 or more
low-level API calls under a single command, in part because virsh has
decent error reporting about which step of the sequence fails.
