The reason I used a qemu process before, was difficulty passing in the
drive options to qemu-io.  I futzed around a bit with the new
--image-opts, but I hadn't tried "file=" in the open command with -o,
so I felt a bit silly after your email.

However, this doesn't seem to work, now that I've tried it.  Is it
broken, or am I doing something wrong?  Here is what I get:

# ./qemu-io -c "open -o file=/tmp/hyperv2012r2-dynamic.vhd,format=vpc" -c "map"
can't open: Cannot find device=/tmp/hyperv2012r2-dynamic.vhd nor 

Technically, I could just rely on image format autodetection since the
current test images are dynamic and not fixed, and use -o to pass the
vpc specific options.  I just hate to rely on autodetection anymore.
