We definitely should. However, since this is just an initial
implementation so there's nothing to break so far. Moreover, given how
close to release we are (and how much users wants this in - see Dan's
comment in the cover letter) I think it is not a show stopper for now.
However, if he adds it just before pushing that would be great.

On the other hand - virlockd is to be shipped within libvirtd package.
And it's not to be used by users directly. So the requirements to
backward compatibility seems slightly relaxed to me when compared to
virsh+libvirtd. But then again - that's not a green light to breaking
the compatibility, it's rather the opposite.
