[Qemu-devel] vnc port selection

  Hi folks,

Xen's qemu-dm version has a '-vncunused' command line switch which asks
the internal vnc server to pick any unused tcp port to listen on.  The
actual port is communicated to the outside world via xenstore.

I'm looking for a reasonable way to implement that functionality in
upstream qemu.  First, I think it shouldn't be a separate command line
switch but an option for the existion -vnc switch.  Second, we need a
way to communicate the port picked which isn't xen-specific.  Obvious
choice is a monitor info subcommand.

Comments?  Other suggestions?
