Here is the script that we provide with libvirt Debian package:
http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-libvirt/libvirt.git;a=blob;f=debian/libvirt-
suspendonreboot;h=088527fb0e3d54f583da430eab468d6472a660c1;hb=HEAD

It uses virsh and works fine, but an integrated feature in libvirt (to be 
compatible with/like the autoboot feature that already exists) should be 
welcome.
