No, that's not what I mean.

I mean that libxl_load_domain_config[1] should obtain the actual
domain name from xenstore, the same way that libxl_domid_to_name does,
and put it into the retreived configuration.


[1] should probably be called libxl_get_domain_config or something
like that, because "load" might suggest "loading" the config into the
system to make it effective.
