Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/6] normalize_xml: Define the new API

Mention the API name in the commit message, so that grepping 'git log'
makes it easier to find when the API was added.

I would combine this patch with 2/6 - that is, the declaration and the
documentation should belong in the same patch (otherwise, I don't know
if the declaration makes sense).

This should _not_ be tied to a specific domain, but should be a
general-purpose virConnectPtr operation.  After all, it has no impact on
the state of current libvirt objects in use; it is merely a way to
expose the mapping of XML into conf/*_conf.c C structures and back into
XML format.  See also my comments on 0/6 about making it more generic,
to cover more than just <domain>.
