I do not consider this system management functional no more than I see providing a global configuration file as system management functional. They are both mechanisms. The ACL file is a mechanism just like VNC sasl ACLs are a mechanism.

That's why I would like there to be options to either pass to the
helper program, or specify a different helper program.  (Sorry if
that's already in the patches - for some reason I received 0/4 but
didn't receive the 4 patch emails).

There's no need for QEMU to be cleverer than that, and that puts the
whole policy in the hands of the user - where it should be.

It'd still install the default helper you've provided and use it by
default, of course.

That's already how it behaves. You can say -net bridge,helper=/usr/local/bin/my-helper
