Re: [libvirt] test driver for interface config

As an example of how the driver will likely be used, think of supporting
the interface APIs in virt-manager. As a developer, it would be nice to
use the test driver to ensure that all the UI updating as interfaces go
up and down, appear and disappear, etc. is in working order, and that
the XML we are building at least isn't completely bogus. Mopping up
those simple issues with the test driver will ideally make the live
functional testing less painful, and help isolate bugs in the app vs.
bugs in the library.

Thanks, I hadn't considered that end of testing. It definitely sounds useful. I guess I need to make something more general purpose.

A netcf test mode might help, but it may not be useful enough - for example it wouldn't work if the test client was one that didn't support netcf - when connecting to a test driver, it's always on the local machine, correct?
