This python API boils down to virInterfaceChangeBegin() but as such it's
implemented just for netcf backend. So if you're on a distro where udev
is used instead, the API will return an error.
Otherwise, this should work:

if = conn.interfaceLookupByName("name")

/* test if the connectivity to the host was not lost */
