Hmm, I might be wrong about this. Reading the virDomainDestroy
description in libvirt.c, destroy is supposed to free the
domain object if the operation is successful. The qemu driver
currently does not do this. In fact, from what I gather, none
of the drivers do this.

If the virDomainDestroy comment is correct, then the original
python statement is sufficient, but the drivers need to have
a few virDomainFree's added.

Anybody have more info on this?
