Any other (strong) opinions one way or another?  Should I remove the
hellolibvirt.c for now?

Adding network, volume groups, and interfaces was (mostly) trivial once
I got past the set up the structure to handle multiple types. It
certainly shows how similar the API's are for various objects and how
trivial it is to gather generic information for each.

Any thoughts on the libvirt.c changes which are primarily documentation
of the need to free the 'names' returned.  That was a result of a review
comment which noted that the comment in hellolibvirt.c if true should be
rectified. I forgot to put the v2->v1 differences marker when generating
the patch to call this one out specifically.

Thanks,

John
