For what it's worth, the x prefixes for bitmap manipulation were only
because there was no user for those features; if the overall design of
this API proposal looks palatable to the libvirt community, I'll happily
drop the prefix for any commands actually used by this patchset, before
it's merged.

(From the looks of it, it looks like all of them.)
