I've reworked this patches to use a separate element for storing the

support for the LXC driver, and optionaly API to get the description.
(See patches marked as optional). These are not required, just add
a helper api to get the description and it's usage in virsh.

I noticed a discussion [1] about adding metadata to domains definition and methods of accessing it.

As these patches can also be considered to deal with metadata and we probably shouldn't add a ton of API's for accessing them we could as well as add an API to support various formats of metadata.

What are your opinions on this? Should we add such a general function (virDomain[Get|Set]Metadata)? Is it a good idea to use the virTypedParam to do this? Is the string support on virTypedParam complete?


Thanks

Peter

P.S.: I'm self-NACKing this patchset until this is settled.
