Oh actually, we need to be able to specify TLS paths in the URI
as well, so if we add that ability to the URI, then we don't
need the config params for tls either.

So we really come down to a config file with the URI and a logfile.
Is this any better than just setting LIBVIRT_DEFUALT_URI and
LIBVIRT_LOG_OUTPUTS in $HOME/.bashrc, which *will* actually impact
any application using libvirt.so without needing any code changes
on those apps
