If I understand correctly, the idea behind these functions is: the
application developers know there is a new QEMU event not known by
libvirt library yet.
And the developer still requests to add a callback for the new event
without the upgrade of libvirt . The functions above provide a QEMU
specific way to
let the application register the callback by QEMU event without much
intervention of libvirt. Then later if we want to promote the QEMU
specific way to the libvirt,
we should warn the application developer that the QEMU specific way is

Yes. Whether or not the qemu registration continues to work after the official libvirt event is added is a different matter, since we've already documented that use of libvirt-qemu is unsupported, but if it is possible to cheaply provide the event through both means, then doing that will allow more clients using the older libvirt-qemu to continue working without recompiling to use the newer libvirt event.
