I am adding a custom PCI device to virt-manager. I have edited
virt-manager source (addhardware.py ,__init__.py ,addhardware.ui, 
so the custom device will appear in "Add Hardware" window of virt-manager.
Now it looks like I have to edit libvirt qemu capabilities 
(qemu_capabilities.c libvirt.c)
to support the device. Is this the right procedure for adding custom 

I was expecting to edit an XML file or other config file rather than 
source code.
Is there any plan to change this procedure for adding custom devices?
