[virt-tools-list] Possibility to define directory used to save snapshots?

Using Virtual Machine Manager 1.4.3 here on Devuan Ascii with libvirt0
3.0.0-4+deb9u1. I have a collection of VMs on this machine (so single
host, no migrations, no shared storage etc etc) that are stored in a
storage pool outside of the root volume (since the root volume is mostly
dedicated to the OS) - so not '/var/lib/libvirt/images'.

The OS volume is running out of space, and I found that snapshots were
being stored separately from the VMs, at '/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/save' -
is there a way for me to configure where snapshots end up, and
preferably in the same storage location as the VMs?

'/etc/libvirt/storage' seems to only store configuration for the storage
pools that host the VMs.

Thanks for any help
