No. The default virt-manager is buggy. So I want to have a way to do
the same thing on command line.

I haven't got a chance to try the latest version of ./virt-manager
yet. I'm not sure if the bug is gone or not.

What are the other packages that I'd better know besides the ones
available in git://git.fedorahosted.org/virt-manager.git?
