then convert with virDomainLookupByName

I still want to add a new API that returns a filterable list of ALL
domains in one API, where the return is virDomainPtr rather than id or
name (basically, a virDomainPtr is name, id, and uuid all rolled into
one struct), and where you can use flags to filter the list (active
only, inactive only, transient only, persistent only, and possibly other
useful filters).  Too late for 0.9.12, but should hit in 0.9.13...
