Sounds good.
I'm deferring "allowed_drivers" for now, and preparing
a patch to add support for a new configuration parameter

  unix_sock_dir

and also for

  log_dir

The latter is required because otherwise, there's no way for
non-root to use a log file other than ~/.libvirt/log, or for
root to use a log file other than the default.
