The attach/detach device driver functions aren't implemented yet, but
that's on my todo list.

The VI API contains methods and types to do this. It requires a new
interface driver as Chris already said. This is not implemented yet,
but that's on my todo list.

The basic question is: How urgent is this for you? Do you need it now
or can you wait some time until I implemented it?

PS: I just finished the implementation of the driver function for
virDomainDefineXML(). I need to cleanup the patches a bit and will
post them by the end of the week, depends on how fast I can get done
some other urgent, university related work.
