What type of scripts are you talking about?  You may be thinking more
about the capabilities of what libguestfs provides, for modifying disk
images.  In general, virsh itself controls how to start a guest, but not
the additional layers of communication (such as virtio, qemu-ga, or the
libguestfs appliance app) required for a host to command a guest to do
something from within the guest.
