I've got some ideas, but I just don't know it their size is sufficient.
But IIUC, there are 3 levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), so
hopefully the ideas can land in one of them.

1) Virsh auto completion

This is something I think will be very useful for nearly all libvirt
users. I've proposed the idea a while ago and my sense is we have some
consensus how this should work. But I am afraid this is more mechanical
work than real programming one.

2) Storage driver jobs

This is slightly advanced one. Currently, there's no way how to cancel
an ongoing storage driver job. For instance, libvirt starts wiping huge
file, however user at some point decides to cancel it. And for now,
there is no way of doing that (other than just killing 'scub' binary to
which we offload the work to). Things get complicated, if we want to
share job acquiring code with qemu driver, and report progress (if
operation itself is capable of it).

3) libvirt-designer

Just an rough idea to extend functionality. No concrete ideas yet.

4) libvirt-snmp

Drop autogenerated parts of code, so after each MIB addition one doesn't
have to regenerate nearly whole codebase.

What do you guys think?
