If we add this in 2.3, libvirt will use it.  If we wait until 2.4,
libvirt will manage without (as it has already managed without for all
earlier releases); it is just a little bit harder to ensure that formats
are being uniformly used.  I'm okay if this topic proves too
controversial to add into 2.3 at this late in the cycle, even though I'm
in favor of adding it.
