Now you can edit a saved state file even if you forgot to grab

feels so much nicer.

* tools/virsh.c (cmdSaveImageDumpxml, cmdSaveImageDefine)
(cmdSaveImageEdit): New commands.
* tools/virsh.pod (save-image-dumpxml, save-image-define)
(save-image-edit): Document them.

Needs the next patch to be testable.  'save-image-edit' feels a bit
long, but I couldn't think of something shorter.  Should I keep the
new save-image-* commands in the main domain group, or should I create
a new save-image group, in case we add more later?

I think the main group is fine - we alreaddy have plenty of other
save related commands there.

We can always regroup later, so for now I left it in the domain group.


Thanks; I've now pushed 17-19. That leaves 16 and 20 needing a v3 posting (coming up shortly). That is, the new APIs are now committed, and virsh knows how to use them, but without 16 and 20, no domain actually implements the new dxml modifications of save state image yet.
