[Libvir] Release of libvirt-0.3.0

  Considering the amount of changes available in CVS, a release was in
order plus increasing the minor release number was also making sense.
  The package is available at

The main change is the secure remote support at the API level thanks to
Richard Jones, look at the specific page to get informations on what
is available and how to set up the certificates needed for authentication:
it's worth also looking at the URI documentation to see how to build the
connection URI strings

Last thing, the background daemon has been renamed between versions 0.2.3
and the current version from libvirt_qemud to libvirtd since it now also serve
for the remote support, so when upgrading the package it's a good idea
to stop first the libvirt service, do the upgrade and then restart the service
otherwise you may end up with a old version of the daemon running.
