Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH] Non-daemon actions indirect through generated code

Matt asked me this morning if we could generate guestfish scripts
automatically from running programs like virt-v2v.  Good idea.

This patch however doesn't do this, but it lays the groundwork for it:
In order for us to generate code for any functions which don't go
through the daemon, we need to add an indirection to those calls via
some generated code.  This will allow us to add guestfish tracing at
some point in the future.

If you want to debug calls to libguestfs code, then the easiest thing
to do is to use ltrace(1).  Sample ltrace output is attached.

ACK (as discussed on IRC, conditional on trace too).
