Oh I remember now - both Xen and QEMU have a global default setting
for VNC listen (/etc/libvirt/qemu.conf and /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp).
So, if we default to '127.0.0.1' in the parser, we'll always override
the global hypervisor default setting. Hence we need to apply any
defaults in the individual drivers at time of guest creation (if it
is applicable).
