A quit may be implicit, but the problem at hand is what $? gets set to
in the shell after virsh is done.  In batch mode, virsh exits with the
status of the last command executed, and we expect the domname command
to fail (invalid argument), whereas quit (trivially) succeeds.  That is,
since the shell script expects $? to be zero, the quit command is
necessary to avoid polluting the exit status with the failure from
domname while still proving that virsh didn't abort command processing
merely because one command failed.  We didn't need the quit in
interactive mode, because EOF is treated the same as an implicit quit

Pushed with the quit.
