Forgive me if I am too blind to see, but I haven't found this
"description" field on http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html .

Actually it would be nice to distinguish between a human readable
description and some locally defined attributes for the domain,
anyway. I would like to have something like

	my $uri = shift;
	my $attribute = shift;
	my $vmm = Sys::Virt->new(address => $uri);
	my @domains = $vmm->list_domains();
	foreach my $dom (@domains) {
		if (grep /$attribute/ @{$dom->get_attributes()}) {
