This patch series resolves the following bug:

In short, it implements support for a new "listenNetwork" attribute in
the domain's<graphics>  element. When listenNetwork is specified,
libvirt will look for a network of that name (from the networks that
can be created within libvirt), and derive a listen address from the
physical interface used to connect that network to the outside
world. (More details are given in each commit message).

I guess it's not possible to reuse the existing 'listen' attribute, by doing context-sensitive parsing to allow either ip address or a network name, because 'listen' already supports host names which get resolved into an ip address.

I haven't looked at the series in detail, so maybe that will help me think of a possibly better attribute name.


Note that I'm not particularly fond of the attribute name (it's too
long and has the ugly capital letter in the middle). If anyone has a
suggestion for something better, please give your opinion now, before
it's pushed and becomes permanent!
