Note: you can already inspect all the arguments in a file

 /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$GUESTNAME.log

always contains the args

I guess my answer depends on how much work it would involve ? If we could
use all our existing command line generator code & simply write the result
to a file, that'd be reasonable. If we had to change all our code to write
stuff in a different format, I'd be less enthusiastic.
