Upstream had a bug where they released with a comma instead of a
period. The unfortunate thing is that the comma is in the wild. They
accepted a patch afterwards to change it back to a period.

That being said, I believe this worked in libvirt master since I
actually tried it both ways when I contacted upstream QEMU about this
several months back. Its possible though that commits since I've tried
it have broken it.
