    send-key: Defining the public API
    Add public virDomainSendKey() and enum libvirt_keycode_set
    for the @codeset.

Support for mouse events is still TBD
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2016-03-22 18:20:48 EDT
qemu 2.6 will have the input-send-event command, which AFAICT can be used for mouse input

    qapi: promote input-send-event to stable

Will probably require a new libvirt API, I doubt we can shoehorn this into virDomainSendKey
