Okay, I'll be sure to add it to bugzilla sometime soon.

Your request for a patch implies that this would be a welcome feature
and will not be rediscussed on its principal merit correct?
(implementation details notwithstanding ;-) )

The reason I ask, is that I do not have a development environment ready
for libvirt and there will be quite a bit work before I've read through
all your guidelines, setup a development VM (I suppose that should be
easiest with the latest stable release of Fedora, RHEL or CentOS?)

I'm not sure yet that I can muster up the time, but it does seem
interesting, so a may give it shot.  It would be very disappointing if
it then were rejected on principle.

Thank you!
