I did find a "Should-start: avahi-daemon" comment in the libvirtd
init script, so maybe that is the source.

Shouldn't be. 'Should-start' means 'if this other service is enabled, it
should be started before this one': it's not a strict dependency, 'this
other service MUST be started before this one'.

Yea, changing the comment there didn't fix anything, but it was a good
hint since I finally found the "mdns_adv" setting in the libvirtd.conf
file and uncommenting it did finally squash avahi-daemon :-).

I'm wondering if this means that libvirt should change any of its policies about auto-starting avahi-daemon, or at the very least, if there is a documentation shortcoming on why libvirt defaults to enabling this and when you might want to change that default.
