Yeah and virt-manager's support is basically a hack, since rename won't happen
if there's nvram, or managed save, or snapshots for example. But the
virt-manager support predates those bits, when rename wasn't too problematic.
We really just need a proper 'rename' API that handles migrating all the
hidden stuff that is dependent on VM name.
