I didn't say it required involvement to understand. I understand it now,
and it only took 1 sentence to explain it. But that sentence really has
to be in the documentation, and where it can be found.

You are confusing complexity with poor documentation. Qemu is not hard
to use, it is poorly documented. Big difference. The way qemu works is
not at all obvious, it needs to be explained, even if the explanation
only takes 1 paragraph.
