Heh, yeah.  I think Daniel Berrange's approach of using firewall rules to control the access is probably the most rugged... 

My only other thought, and probably pretty fragile unless you put good scripting around it, is to still do the restarting thing, but change the listen_addr entry before the restart.

Though, I think it'll be an interesting (bad) situation if you want to change or restart one of the virtual networks when libvirtd is attached to it.  Can see problems with that. ;)
