Run multiple virt-manager instances on the same physical host? What's the use
case exactly?

I don't know what 'aware' means in this context.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think this is something that makes sense for
virt-manager. We are really targeting users with a small number of hosts and a
small number of virtual machines. Of course, we don't want the app to fall
over if you have 20 connections, but I don't have any interest in adding
explicit, potentially complex and/or confusing UI to facilitate a workflow
that would really only apply to a small percentage of all virt-manager usage.
