I wonder if that would be improved by making DBus calls directly
to firewalld, instead of invoking firewalld-cmd all the time. The
latter is unquestionably inefficient compared to DBus calls, but
it'd be interesting to know if that's really what's causing the
x8 slowdown.

The libvirt in Fedora 17 is frozen at this point. So if we did include
this, it'd be cherry-picking backports.
