I know your big on having the interface be consistent between operating 
systems, but my experience is Linux users use only Linux software and Mac users 
use only Mac software. It is possible there is someone out there who uses both 
the Mac OS and Linux versions of QEMU. I'm just not going to bet on it. 

I will have a patch for your idea available soon.
