I'm still a bit wary of this patch.  Is this something that can be done
with 'virsh -c test:///default' can do?  Or can we at least copy how
daemon-conf runs an instance of libvirtd pointing to an independent pid
and config file, whether or not the system libvirtd is running?

Or should we be trying to do this as part of libvirt-tck instead?
