Locally I've implemented VIR_DOMAIN_START_PERSISTENT for
virDomainCreateXML() and the qemu driver. I'm tweaking virsh to call
that when you do virsh define --start instead of virDomainDefine().

It still needs some massaging and docs fix ups locally before I'm
ready to push it for review. But basically there's:

virsh create --persistent domain.xml
virsh define --start domain.xml

I'll let you guys decide what parts you want to keep and what parts you don't.
