[virt-tools-list] Add a manually configured XEN

I can see the point Bernhard. It seems that libvirt is not aware of this
guest. Well, if virsh (part of libvirt) is seeing the guest only then
the guest is running then you need to create a configuration for that in
the libvirt itself. I know there's something like:
virsh domxml-from-native <format> <config>
but I never used it so I don't know about the config and format and how
does it work. Please try asking the libvirt guys on the libvirt list (I
put this list in CC now).

If I start the domU with xm create config then the virtual machine appears in the virt-manager. If I stop the XEN it will disappear. How could I add the XEN to the virt-manager like all the other (with virt-manager) created domU that I have it listed with the virt-manager and could start it from GUI?
