libvirt/QEMU: changing "save" directory for qemu:///session connection


I'm using qemu:///sesssion connection.

By default, when I "save" the machine, the .save file is placed under $HOME/.config/libvirt/qemu/save.

Is it possible to change this location, while still keeping $HOME/.config/libvirt as base directory for other configuration files?

Quick look at libvirt-3.10.0 source code tells me it's not possible.
Please let me know if you know more ;-)


Best regards,
Andrzej Telszewski
