I'm confused, we've been using virt-install without apparent problems
for quite some time like this?

The existence of the other tools doesn't make it sensible for obscure
behaviour changes between two ways of doing the exact same thing.

The /only/ reason I'm introducing virt-console is to correctly implement
the least priv support.

virt-manager aside (which is more or less a graphical
virsh/virt-install), all of these should have indeed been virsh
commands. It's horrible that I have to use a separate tool with a
different interface to install my guest, then virsh to manage it.
