It's still the base of the emulator you get with current SDKs.

FWIW, latest AOSP (today's git checkout) built for the vbox_x86-eng
target runs nicely in QEMU/KVM (using the intermediate disk image
"android_disk.img"). So, adding device models to improve this
environment would likely be more helpful to provide a first alternative
to the Android emulator. And it's likely a lower hanging fruit. And a
much sweeter one (KVM makes it pretty fast :) ).
