/** * virConnectGetType: * @conn: pointer to the hypervisor connection * * Get the name of the Hypervisor software used. ** Returns NULL in case of error, a static zero terminated string otherwise.
*/ const char * virConnectGetType(virConnectPtr conn) [...]This is all well and good in the typical local case, but when working over a remote connection the string we return is allocated and requires freeing at some point. Unfortunately I don't see a good thing to do in this case except to change the semantics of virConnectGetType, which arguably breaks ABI compatibility.
