Libvirt has a notion of a virStreamPtr, which is an object which tracks
an arbitrary pass-through channel.  Any API such as virDomainOpenConsole
that needs to pass data in both directions between the client and the
source opens up a virStreamPtr, then passes that data alongside all the
other RPC calls.  For more details on how the data is passed, read
docs/internals/rpc.html, and look at the stream type packets.  A
virStreamPtr is also used under the hood in tunneled migration.
