Thank you for looking into this.

This whole thing needs to be replaced with proper option
parsing.  Currently, it completely ignores any unknown
(such as mistyped) parameters among other things, or you
can specify the same parameter twice without it noticing.
So it needs more work when we'll decide which route to
take with option parsing.

I can rewrite it using QemuOpts, but I didn't want to
because it appears their lifetime is very limited too.

And sure, I can check for conflicting data= and file=,
I just thought it's not really necessary having in mind
all the above :)
