Just a side note, The first line of commit message (usually referred to
as subject line) should start with capital letter. I'll fix that before

But this got me thinking, should we follow libvirt's example and finally
split src/libvirt-php.c into smaller files that would handle just one
object? For example:


and so on.

The other thing that comes to my mind - would you mind updating the
example under examples/ so that we can demonstrate how NWFilters work in
