I support this idea. And also want to point out that as far as I can see
now in the documentation, libvirt isn't the holy grail that is
semantically correct everywhere from the start (examples: relation
between storage pools and the actual domains, statistics of network
interfaces by domains, etc.)

Adding features that are enabled with #ifdef HAVE_DEVELOPMENT would be a
good thing. Also handeling things that are imported in libvirt as
'relative' pointers, and never having to refer to something os/distro
specific would be a great starting point.
