Overhaul libvirt to improve testability and add event-based callbacks.

Registered by Brian Lamar on 2011-04-15

The current method for connecting to a libvirt-based hypervisor, through nova/virt/libvirt_conn.py, is functional but is lacking support for a number of great libvirt features. Some of the items we are missing are optimizations and others are simply new features that we could provide to the world if we take a step back and look at the design of the LibvirtConnection class. I'd love feedback publicly and/or privately for the attached wiki page outlining potential improvements for connecting to libvirt.
