Apologies for going on and on about this, but does the "5+ years"
figure imply that further development work is necessary, or is the
code needed to make setting these in the service file obsolete
already in libvirt? Because if the latter I think we can simply drop
the comments today: anyone who was setting them in the past can still
set them even if we don't provide examples, and anyone who was not
already using them is probably going to be better off if we don't
advertise the old way of doing things.
