One thought.  You *can* setup libvirt to do completely unencrypted tcp
communication; you just need to set up libvirtd.conf properly.  So maybe we can
just do that in standalone mode, and bypass the digest-md5 thing altogether?
Since we aren't ever leaving the local node with the traffic, we really
shouldn't have a security concern.  Then (I think) we would be able to use the
VNC plugin.
