Indeed - the whole point of bindings in OO languages is to remove the
superfluous prefixes used for namespacing in C when we can instead use
the object oriented namespacing; ErrorDomain.FROM_QEMU reads much better
than ErrorDomain.VIR_FROM_QEMU.  A followup patch to alter the
namespacing might be nice (but _then_ you have to worry about
back-compat to existing clients; can you have two enum names, FROM_QEMU
and VIR_FROM_QEMU, that both share the same numeric value?)

'git am' couldn't parse this properly, and I had to amend the commit to
trim out the rest of your message (not a severe issue, but I'm not sure
why things didn't quite go like normal).
