Testing is quite easy - just try to start the two units and make
sure only one ends up running. Similarly for non-systemd hosts,
start both daemons & see that only one succeeds - the others
fail with lock conflict.

virtproxdy contains no drivers, so it doesn't need to depend
on any of these services.
virtdstoraged/qemud/lxcd should have gained some of these though.
