Alex, I wrote in my first posting:

Do you know this command in qemu? - A german user starts kvm  with that command and 
*any* USB devices that are plugged in *any* USB slot are  automatically connected to 
the guest VM. He needn't find out vendor and product id before.

Is such a function present in libvirt?
