In this case yes, but if you add one further line at the end of
this example

   conn2  = dom.get_connection()

And then have python garbage collect 'dom' and the original 'conn'
you're not safe because 'conn2' didn't increment the reference
count:

/*
 * virDomainGetConnect:
 * @dom: pointer to a domain
 *
 * Provides the connection pointer associated with a domain.  The
 * reference counter on the connection is not increased by this
 * call.
 */

Dan.
