  Hum, actually from a libvirt deployment POV, depending on an unstable
library is way worse than depending on a command line interface. I.e.
the library would make sense only if we had some serious garantee of
stabilities, API/ABI garantees, etc ... In the absence of someone firmly
commiting to this, a CLI is less dangerous. So at least in a first
step an exec() based interface sounds the right approach to me.
