Right now, the libvirtd management socket is only accessible by root:root.

How about adding a libvirtd user group to Nixos for that purpose? Or maybe a configurable user group?

I'm not sure what would be the best option here, but this page lists the alternatives: - PolicyKit would be possible too, but it seems to me that it would be overkill for most situations.

Access to users in the "libvirtd" group was added here: f7d11af. The group name is hardcoded, but I cannot think of a situation (yet) where it'd be useful to have it configurable.
