You are right, and the idea is that the person have full interaction with the application environment including the underlying LAMP/WAMP stack that has been packaged. Users that want to quickly run and test-drive the appliance may not really need a full VM type application. Just something that could quickly run the image (appliance).

qemu doesn't have config files, so your question makes no sense.
Well, I was not thinking or suggesting of a crippled qemu version. I

My impression was that these "appliances" are full virtual machines. It's just an OS install that's been stripped down and configured to run a single application on startup.
