  var optargs = new Guestfs.AddDriveOpts ({readonly: true});
  g.add_drive_opts (filename, optargs);

This awkward style is required because GObject Introspection doesn't
support optional arguments.

Here is my program, which uses add_drive_opts and performs inspection,
similar to the 'inspect_vm' example:

I think Javascript is simply ignoring the second and third arguments.
I'm a bit surprised there is no error ...
