This is desirable, but I never bothered to do it on the old
libvirt RPC code, because it was such a tangled mess that I
thought the resulting #ifdef conditionals would be quite
unpleasant. Your patch shows that it isn't as bad as I thought
it would be.

With our new RPC code, the TLS stuff is quite well separated
from the rest of the code, so I think I'd be happy to accept
a patch to make TLS optional with latest libvirt GIT trees.
