You have to draw a line at some point. Your generic upstream libvirt
won't just work with qemu on CentOS-6 since it was so heavily patched
that the downstream libvirt carries a rather huge amount of patches that
make them work together. This implies that it would require a upstream
rebuild of qemu too. At that point you certainly don't get any of the
"enterprise" reasons to use an enterprise as stability and testing and
other stuff, so you might as well as upgrade anyways.

Maybe it's time to finally stop fixing it to see whether people complain.
