I haven't looked at this patch in detail yet, but I posted a similar patch a
while back

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2015-June/msg00711.html

Later, Martin had some good review comments

https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2015-July/msg00557.html

I was working on a V2 to address his comments, but found that it introduced a
race between saving and destroying a domain. The work got interrupted and sadly
I haven't found time to resume that.

Regards,
Jim
