The xml configuration file are too much hard to consult and to modify 
directly from a human. 
The idea to use additional library and therefore to add obligatory 
prerequirement to qemu, is not an idea that have appeals for me.

My program and library can manage from the basic ' key value' 
to the configuration file of xfree/xorg (and multiple keys, groups with name 
in one key) without particular problems.

As an example: 
Qemu set up a function of callback, calls one function of my library for 
 demands one group (or some groups) and one key (or some keys), my library, 
using the callback function it gives back the value (or some values). 
Then qemu it will make what he must make, and I do not see particular problems 
of incompatible with a major change in qemu.

> xml style or rc style, please no hack in betweeen :)

All depends from functions that are wanted to be added at qemu, without the 
group not it goes beyond simpler configurations.
