+      This provides a pool that contains all the multipath devices on the
+      host. Volume creating is not supported via the libvirt APIs.
+      The target element is actually ignored, but one is required to appease
+      the libvirt XML parser.<br/>
+      <br/>
+      Configuring multipathing is not currently supported, this just covers
+      the case where users want to discover all the available multipath
+      devices, and assign them to guests.
