I think based on the previous time through this and the explanation
provided afterwards I am comfortable with the changes. Still it would be
nice perhaps to alter the comments in file_access_whitelist.txt in order
to describe the various settings like you replied here:


starting with "The idea is to have two sets of rules:" and copying
enough of that in order to provide an example in the comments so that
someone who really didn't have the desire or cycles to read the perl
script could actually write a reasonable rule.

Knowing "how" or "when" to use may be a good idea. After patch 1 there's
no longer an example in the qemuxml2argvtest output.

Consider it a weak because my perl scripting and regex knowledge isn't
the best...
