I folded in Daniel's suggestion to call the older API when only --live
was requested (actually, I did it differently - flags only has to be set
if config is specified).

You forgot documentation in tools/virsh.pod.  I'm adding:

At any rate, ACK as modified, and I pushed the amended series.  Thanks
again for your first contribution!
