Side note: we need to figure out something better than this horrible
shell script for autostart/autoshutdown, so that we fit in better
with systemd.

We might want to come up with a custom 'virsh host-shutdown' and
'virsh host-startup' command, which would let us write a really
trivial systemd unit file to do this, avoiding the horrible shell
