The purpose of spice_usb_device_manager_device_ok_with_guest is for a UI
(like the device selection widget) to show these devices in a different
way (ie set their widgets as not sensitive), how do you propose to
convey the reason why the are not active to the user? Esp. when the reason
may be different per device?
Currently the plan is to show a small colored bar at the top of the
widget with the text:
"Some devices cannot be redirected because of host policy"
To see how the bar would look like, go to nautilus, then File ->
Connect to server, enter a non existing hostname and hit connect.
