I wrote one a long time ago called vqemu. It's a simple bash script that
gives support for a really primitive style of config file (basically a file
full of "qemu parameter"="on/off" or "parameter"="value". All I have to do is
type 'vqemu' in the right directory (or call 'vqemu -config file') and I get
a VM running with no troubles.

If people think this is a good idea I can easily update this to qemu 0.8.0's

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
