There is a potential bug [1] in the Gentoo package that tracks the libvirt git repository. I will wait a few days for the Gentoo folks to sort it out. If not, I will remove the Gentoo libvirt package and install the latest from git manually. I intend to test this feature and provide feedback for you. Again, thank you for this feature. I understand that your implementation is to address a network security concern.

I intend to expand to apache/mod_perl/Sys-Virt/libvirt management tool to concurrently monitor QEMU and LXC. It would be nice if I could get the IP address for each virtual system in a uniform way. I do not know if this is a feasible feature to request. I will already have to work around the differences between QEMU and LXC in code, so this isn't a huge deal. Just a suggestion for a possible future feature.

Also LXC domains can use the nwfilter subsystem and make use of the IP address detection in the same way as Qemu does and with that also an LXC domain's XML should display the IP_LEASE information now. I haven't used LXC myself, though. I guess for your purposes someone would have to extend the perl wrappers to provide access to that information.

Let me know when you tested it. I have pretty high confidence in the correctness of the code now :-)
