Right -- for 1.2.12 they decided to  have libvirt-python be a
completely separate package.  I  had apparently started getting that
package built at some time in the distant past but never finished.

I've cloned & build Fedora's libvirt-python-1.2.15 (which is pretty
much what I did for libvirt-1.2.15); it should show up in buildlogs in
an hour or two.  Once that's in, if you go "yum
--enablerepo=centos-virt-xen-testing virt-manager", it should install.
(At least, the version in CBS works for me.)

Let me know if it works.
