[virt-tools-list] [RFC] virt-what as a reusable library

I am working on a project which would like to know if the current 
machine is a guest, and if so what type of guest it is. This 
functionality is currently available in virt-what[1]. The current 
implementation is a bash shell which invokes a C libary. Our project 
would be interested in seeing this functionality provided as a library 
(C or python is preferred). I sample python patch (probably not the 
best) is attached.

Would other folks see value in a library such as this? I am concerned 
that if projects each take different takes on this functionality by 
copying the code we are likely to diverge with un-desirable results.
