Exactly. And if we ever want to have configure options to deliberately
disable some 'modules' (e.g. I want my php bindings without support for
say networks), we can just not compile that file in. It's doubtful that
somebody will ever need this though. Perhaps when they are running
libvirt without the corresponding module enabled too?
