No change to tools/virsh.pod?  I would have expected something like:

=item B<schedinfo> I<domain> [[I<--config>] [I<--live>] | [I<--current>]]
[I<--set> B<parameter=value>]...

Previously, 'schedinfo domain 1' was parsed as --set=1, but then errored
out because there was no '=' in the argument to set; a user doing weight
in isolation had to do an explicit --weight=1 to skip the --set field.
Now that you have re-ordered parameters, but used VSH_OFLAG_REQ_OPT on
all parameters that got moved before set, a single argument still parses
as --set, and the user still has to do an explicit --weight=1 to use the
weight option instead.  That's good - no semantic change for the
single-argument case.

For the multi-argument case: previously, 'schedinfo domain foo=bar 1'
was parsed as --set=foo=bar --weight=1, now it will parse as
--set=foo=bar --set=1 and error out.  But I don't think that anyone was
relying on mixing old and new syntax (the man page called out --weight
on a different line than --set), so I can live with that change.

Thus, even though I see a difference in parse, that difference is only
on a case that users should not have been doing, and I'm happy with your

ACK, if you touch up virsh.pod to match.
