Yes, that's why I wanted a single init script just called 'libvirtd' - so
even if we do have 2 separate daemons for a short while - when we do get
around to combining them the user doesn't have to use a different init
script. Basically want to hide the libvirt_qemud from direct sight at an
admin level in expectation that it will go away in favour of the general
purpose daemon.
