[libvirt-users] host to VM serial device configuration

I'm trying to get a virtual serial device up and running between my  
host and virtual machine with a device name on the host.  I'm using  
libvirt 0.8.3 and qemu 0.13.0.  The challenge that I'm running into is  
that I'm able to get a serial device, but I cannot fix it to a pre- 
defined device name.  For example, I'm using the following in my VM's  
xml file:

<serial type='pty'>
	<source path='/dev/pts/19' />
	<target port='0' />

As I said this works, but it doesn't set the host side to /dev/pts/ 
19.  Is there any way to do this?
