In opposite to "qemu -c MyImage" ?

Why do you want the user to do extra typing? There's one config in
one directory, so typing the config file name is just redundant.

Why would there only be one config in one directory?

Because a bundle is a "special" directory, not /home/yourname or / etc. Its sole purpose is to have the appropriate content at the correct location. It is usually not modified manually by the user but by an application knowing the format.

If you want to have configuration files everywhere I see two possibilities:

a) Make it dependent on the bundle extension.
"qemu -c Machine.qvm" (bundle) vs. "qemu -c dir/yourConfig" (config)

b) Use different command line switches.
"qemu -bundle Machine.qvm" vs. "qemu -c yourConfig"
