Absolutely.  And so the above job ships with the libcgroup package,
not with libvirt.

Yes.  And with the default rules, if libcgroup is installed *and*
if libvirt does not wait until libcgroup is configured at boot, then
VMs won't start up.

So when just libvirt is installed, the above job is not needed (and
not installed on the machine).  When just libcgroup is installed, the
above job will be installed, but since it starts on 'starting libvirt',
it won't ever run if libvirt is not installed.

Yup, I definately don't want to suggest that there is anything wrong
with what libvirt does.

Right, and the above job just makes sure that the above has finished
before libvirt starts.
