Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] xml: Clean up rest of virtual XML document names for XML strings

   Considering the previous patch this one makes sense, but I realize
that the string passed is supposed to be an URI, doesn't have to be
absolute but the principle of that argument passed to the parser, beside
giving a name for the 'entity' (basically a file in XML terminology)
is used to resolve URI-References done from within the XML content.
  Since we don't use any DTD, this should not affect parsing, but users
might be tempted to add this for fun or validation, and that would not
be wrong. Simply replacing the spaces by underscore in the string would
be sufficient to make them correct URIs (I doubt %escape of the space
would be any nicer for the users...)

   So in one hand, yes this makes sense, but I wonder if we shouldn't
clean this up ...
I agree. Making them valid URI's and still telling the user:
"I am not a file you should look for!" is a good approach and the
underscores are a fine way to do it.

v2 incomming.
