Personally I'd rather -nographic didn't take over stdio either:
it should just disable graphics, and if you want serial on your
stdio you can say "-serial stdio"; it's a bit non-orthogonal
for an option which is about how we handle video output to have
a non-overridable side-effect of redirecting the serial port.

(Also the "-nographic" running of serial over stdio doesn't let
you kill qemu with ^C, the way "-serial stdio" does, which is
just annoyingly inconsistent...)
