This commit adds support for ovirt:// URIs. It does so by using
libgovirt to get the spice/vnc connection information through
oVirt xmlrpc API.

Since you're adding new deps, you nede to be updating the RPM
spec files too.
Ah right, I'll do that (though I still haven't packaged/got libgovirt into
fedora :-/ )

What sort of deps does this drag in ? Is the ovirt library
self-contained - ie I hope it doesn't pull in any of the
java bloatware.
libgovirt is a small gobject wrapper for the oVirt REST API. The official
oVirt REST SDK is entirely written in python, that's why I wrote this small
library which for now only does the bare minimum to list VMs/get connection
parameters.
It's written in C, and depends on glib/gobject and librest (small GObject
library which depends on libsoup).

Out of curiosity.. what is the aim of this thing (short and long term) ? to be able to manage oVirt VMs from virt-manager ? Why won't i use ovirt itself.. any usecase of where and how this will be useful ?
