Yep, I saw that, I've actually written something like this on my own
server (but not very clean for now, that's why I haven't shared it yet)

If this is fixed, then, the save/restore script could be much more
simple. All it have to do is a managedsave on every running or paused
guest. Then, when libvirt start on host boot, all the guest configured
to autoboot would be started, and restored from the saved state if
available, or normally started.

Guests which have been saved on shutdown, but not configured for
autoboot can stay stpped, until the admin start them manually (and then,
they will be restored from the saved state).
