Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] Default to qemu:///system if accessible

NACK, I don't think we should be changing this. If the user

the privileged libvirtd, they should given an explicit URI.

Hm... I didn't think this was going to be controversial :)

Maybe a less-controversial patch would be changing configure.ac to add a configure option for the default URI string for non-privileged users? Right now, the default is hard-coded to qemu:///session, but by letting it be a configure choice, then it would be up to the end user (or distro) whether to risk the default of qemu:///system as well as exposing the socket as writable.
