The thing is that you can specify multiple boot devices in the XML to
set a priority, eg

   <boot dev="network"/>
   <boot dev="hd"/>

Gets maps to  '--boot nc'  so in this scenario you'd have a virtio device
being bootable, and also have PXE enabled.

FWIW, I always start with the test cases first defining the XML and QEMU
args, and then write the impl until the test cases pass.
