I'm working on some network simulation tool based on libvirt python
module. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question
but since my debian package indicates your homepage I hope to be

My problem i following:
I connect to the hypervisor and get an virConnect reference and now I
would like to remove some/all interfaces. I checked the available
methods but it seems like no method can fulfill my wish. Even in
virDomain I couldn't find an appropriate method.
I would like not to detach the interface but to remove it from the
/etc/libvirt/qemu/<machine_name>.xml config file so that the system
remembers my decision next time I boot the machine.

I'm sure there is a way but somehow I can't see/find it :(

Any suggestions or ideas?

Thx in advance
