It is *not* the only purpose of the monitor to confuse libvirt.  The
whole 'info <foo>' command family is very useful for development and
debugging purposes and it will not interfere at all with libvirt.

I can't stand your attitude to refuse any feature just because you fear
users might abuse it.  That applies to almost any feature which makes
life easier for developers.  Which in turn means using libvirt for
development is either a bit complicated or impossible.
