I actually moved the doc changes into a separate patch, since they
turned out to be bigger in nature:

Thanks for the review.  It turns out reproducing this in python is
fairly straightforward; here run pre-patch:

$ python
>>> def hi():
...	print('hi')
...
>>> import libvirt
>>> conn = libvirt.open('qemu:///system')
>>> conn.domainEventRegisterAny(None, 0, hi, '')
libvirt: Remote Driver error : adding cb to list
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 3865, in
domainEventRegisterAny
    raise libvirtError ('virConnectDomainEventRegisterAny() failed',
conn=self)
libvirt.libvirtError: adding cb to list

Not that I'm sure how to set up the python event loop, but that's one
way to see the improved error message.

At any rate, I've pushed the patch (while waiting for the doc patch review).
