I'd like to have *one* variable used by *all* libvirt-based tools, virt-viewer, virt-manager, virsh, ... We could simply reuse the virsh variable, or we could pick some other name without virsh in there, preferable also shorter and thus easier to remember. VIRT_URI maybe?We should probably apply the change to libvirt, so that if 'NULL' is used for the connect URI for virConnectOpen, and VIRT_CONNECT_URI is set, then NULL gets substituted with the value of the env variable.
