True. But honestly for those users and for the fact that bhyve libvirt support
is very new, I'd just say use virt-manager --connect URI.
I tend to think of that dialog as saying 'these are the libvirt drivers that
virt-manager is expected to work well with'. bhyve may fit that description,
but the maintainers aren't likely to start testing it anytime soon since we
all use linux. And adding that option by default is irrelevant to 99% of
