Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 6/4] virsh: add virsh snapshot-current --name

Sometimes, full XML is too much; since most snapshot commands

Admittedly, this mishandles any XML escapes, such as '&lt;', occurring in name. A more robust solution involves introducing a new virDomainSnapshotGetName; however, while that is a good idea, it goes counter to my goal of no new API for my first round of disk-only snapshot support. Then again, I'm thinking that even with a new API, virsh should be smart enough to use the new API where it works, and fall back to the xml scraping where it doesn't, so I'm debating whether this needs to switch to full-blown xpath parsing instead of just strstr scraping.
