There's plenty of prior art for using config files on unix/linux systems.

I'm not saying we should remove all commandline options. However qemu is 
growing sufficiently many user-adjustable knobs that manipulating them all 
solely via the commandline gets unwieldy. IMHO there's a limit to how much 
information can/should be usefully expressed on the commandline, and qemu is 
approaching that limit.
