We have the exact same needs. We want our customers to be able to
just start/stop VMs and check the state of the machines.

Honestly, I've been disappointed in the past by the libvirt API changing
too fast (breaking our "snapshot-to-the-NAS" tool). This is why I rely on
virsh commands rather than libvirt directly, for now.

I've already started something using the same backend logic but it's not
finished and too dirty to be published.

I wonder if libvirt-php couldn't add some very simple API (not moving so
far) for our particular use case. If so, I may start a (very simple) web
interface. I guess it would be enough for most users.
