What you say is morally wrong here is a bit ambiguous to me. Do you
mean using modified versions of qemu internally at StorageCraft is
morally wrong?
No, it's fine.  Internally you can do whatever you want.

Or do you mean that a run-time linking version would not be in
violation of the GPL legally, but it would be morally wrong?
I cannot answer about the legal part; it's possible that it's legal but
anyway you should listen to a lawyer's opinion and not mine.

Anthony explained that, at least for him, it would be morally wrong.
Other people's mileage may vary.

It's enough for us that prominent members of the qemu community (particularly copyright holders) consider it immoral. We'll simply avoid it entirely.

I think this will wrap things up for us quite nicely. Thanks again for all your help and patience.
