Yeah, I didn't realize it could be used to set parameters either, and to
be honest I think its syntax for doing so sucks since it is stupidly Xen
specific in parameters it accepts.

I think we should deprecate use of schedinfo for setting params, and provide
an alternate setdomsched  command, with a more flexible syntax. Since we 
need to specify type for various params, a syntax using  --int NAME=VAL
with similar for --uint, --long, --ulong, --double, --char

    virsh setdomsched --int weight=1  --int cap=24  myguest
