Well I think this is pretty exciting. Won't this make QEMU the first
fully functional completely user mode PC emulator? I say fully
functional meaning that without TCP/IP networking going I don't consider
a modern OS fully functional.

I'll have to try this soon :-)))

I think the DHCP server is a good idea but in my opinion the way VmWare
runs a bunch of servers that interfere with others (such as its Samba
server) is actually one of its weak points in my book. It loses a lot of
simplicity points there.

Perhaps any built-in DHCP server should autodetect other DHCP servers
and disable itself (unless the user forces it to come up with a command
line option) if it detects another DHCP server on the network?

Just a thought.
