Hey,
	We need some way to have libvirtd automatically start guests and
networks.

	We had said we should have autostart directories containing config
files of guests/networks which should be autostarted. One problem I see
with that is that we'd need a new API to define autostart configs.

	So, I suggest we add an "autostart" flag to the toplevel element of the
configs.

	We could discuss this one at length and I, for one, don't like using
the XML format as an API like this, but ... comments?

Strikes me as the right way to handle it (far less ugly than the xendomains method of stuffing config files into random directories, anyway). But, what do you mean by "using the XML format as an API?"
