Saying that 'Q already handles this' means that any other program that wants to offer a similar ease-of-use would have to be able to read and interpret Q's configuration file format. If instead there is a wrapper-neutral format, then each wrapper can use that. Of course, each wrapper may also add its own, wrapper-specific information to its own bespoke configuration file within the bundle, but any information that is for qemu's use, and that can be shared regardless of which wrapper or even *if* a wrapper is used, would and should be kept in the qemu configuration file - making it possible and easy to share vm bundles with other people, whether or not they have or use the same wrapper.

Just to point this out, I was not saying QEMU must adopt Q's format because that already handles a bundle format. Maybe it would be feasible to have a qemu-specific "command line only" file. The point is however that such a bundle should be designed in a way that has extended uses such as Q's or qemu-launcher's etc. in mind.

Do all frontends actually serialize the whole command line? I noticed the port redirection was in both command line and special sections for Q but I thought some info wasn't in...
