Yes the problem is OpenVZ specific because "vzctl destroy" internally destroys 
the private area.
If there is a new "virDomainUndefineFlag" API, I was thinking that maybe the
openvz driver could check the value of that flag in "openvzDomainUndefine()",
then only remove the container config file in one case, or use "vzctl destroy"
in the other case.
To make it cleaner, a patch could be send upstream so that vzctl destroy 
accepts a new argument like "--keep-private".
