[libvirt] Per-VM access control


is it possible to run libvirt as a "hosting-like" environment?
we would like to provide virtual machines for our users, but we would
like them to be able to reset/reboot/poweroff only their own VMs,
connect to the serial console of their own VMs only, and even maybe
connect to the graphical console of their own VMs.

	Is it possible with libvirt, and without giving them shell access
to the hosting machine?

	For the serial console, I thought about creating a ssh-only
account with hardcoded "virsh console <their_machine_name>" command,
but "virsh console" can be escaped from using ^], so this is not secure
- this way they would be able to get access to other VMs as well.
