Thanks Ben! I have a little question here.

Can we just present three IDs (0/1/2) but not strings for users to
choose which backing_src_type to use like the way of guest modes,

which I think can make cmdlines more consise and easier to print. And is
it better to make a universal API to get backing_src_strings

like Sean have suggested, so that the API can be used elsewhere ?
