The 'right' place is to use 'virsh net-edit <network name>'. Editing the
files in place provides no error checking and can require a libvirtd
restart. The user shouldn't have to know where the files are kept.

Before you make the changes, do 'virsh net-destroy <net name>'. This
will shutdown the network (dnsmasq), but NOT delete it in any way. Then
use 'virsh net-edit <net name>' as mentioned above to make your changes.
Finally, use 'virsh net-start <net name>' which will start a new dnsmasq
