Yes, the boilerplate is horrible. Complaining won't help though, you
need to send patches.

This is copypasted from others, but should be fixed here. We should not
allow the same mistake we did for the '1' event where we pass the path.
This event should only report the target name (along with possibly the
layer via the square bracket syntax 'vda').

I'm not quite sure whether I'm a fan of adding a third event that
reports success. I think we are fine with two. This one should probably
fire only on error conditions and thus the status field will be
> + * @error: error string
This needs more docs. Especially stating that the error string is
free-form and should NOT be ever used for inferring the error cause
since it's bound to change, and is hypervisor specific. Libvirt will not
guarantee that they will not change.
> + * @opaque: application specified data
In general. The usefullnes of this will be limited for human consumption
since we can't guarantee that the errors will not change.
Otherwise we'd probably report the error as an enum value rather than a
string since it's easier to use for higer level APPs.
If human consumption is what you shoot for, I'm okay with this as long
as it's made clear in the docs.
