I must say I really dislike the patches 1..3. It's _really_ getting the QEMU NIH worse. While it is not really possible to get a new shiny mainloop infrastructure in QEMU like snapping fingers (and I'm not sure the glib mainloop will ever happen there

While it's not at the immediate top at my MUST DO list, it's still pretty high FWIW. I think the benefits are huge because it means we can refactor things like the VNC server to just interact with glib which means it can become generally useful outside of QEMU.

), there is no reason not to adopt glib's infrastructure in virtagent. While cooperation between QEMU and virtagent is close, it is IMHO a substantially separate project that can afford starting from a clean slate.

If anybody disagrees, I'd be happy to hear their opinion anyway!

I'm sorry I'm saying this only now and I've been ignoring this series until v7.
