This doesn't make any sense. We have APIs for listing & defining inactive 
domains. The individual drivers implement these APIs according to the
required API contract, and the underlying impl is not something which any
application using libvirt need know or care about. If your application is
relying on the inactive domains being stored in files it is broken.
