Sure, but I don't think kqemu is such an alternative. ;-)

It is. Without kqemu I'll have no alternative, but switch to VBox or VMWare.
And none of them work with qcow images.
I'm not saying that because of any kind of functionality. I'm saying it is
not an alternative, because nobody really maintains it.

KVM is no alternative either for us because nobody really maintains documentation of what interface and functionality we'd have to implement on Solaris, Windows, Mac OS X etc. where no KVM is available today.

I'd expect some documentation here: http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/Documents -- but no luck. No "Porting KVM For Dummies". ;(

I see no problem dumping kqemu support once KVM is available on the kqemu platforms, but now is really a bad point in time.
