That's definitely one reason why this is an internal API, not a
published one :-)

At the moment my plan is to do what works (which is this), not what is
elegant or even long-term supportable.  I hope in the long term we
could have some XML we could pass to libvirt to say "I want to peek
into the disks of this domain, just do it".
