Historically, because it wasn't available.  Now, simply because it's
off by default and before now nobody had asked for it to be enabled.

The Virt SIG is a community effort -- adding a configure option and
rebuilding is no problem, but the Virt SIG will need help testing /
working out bugs in this feature if it's going to be available going

If you're up for helping test it / work out any bugs, I can rebuild it
with the above arguments today.
