We explicitly do *not* want anything other than the libvirt C library
talking the RPC protocol. We consider the RPC protocol to be a *private*
implementation detail for libvirt.so and libvirtd only. Nothing else
should ever use it, not least because not all libvirt drivers actually
make use of the RPC protocol. We also do not make any guarantees that
it will continue to operate in the same way long term, so if you use
the RPC api you may find yourself broken by future libvirt releases.
