This is an artifact of the way we are doing the guest agent
support today.

If you look at the SPICE guest agent, there is a special channel
type 'spicevmc' that is used, and QEMU deals with that internally.

In the future, QEMU will deal with its own guest agent internally
and thus we'll have a new channel type kinda like 'spicevmc' which
does not expose any paths.

For now though, we're using the externally managed agent for
which we do want to expose the path IMHO.
