I am not sure we want *rename virsh commands. Not only for storage, but
in general. And even if we do want these, they don't require a new API.
They can be implemented with simple vir*GetXML(); vir*Define();
vir*Undefine();

This one makes more sense, however I am worried about difficulty a bit.
A GSoC project should take 3 months for a student to complete. This is
something that even unexperienced user can accomplish in less than a month.
