I would like to use QMP more and to autodiscover buses (so that every
SCSI test can be run on both virtio-scsi and LSI SAS, just by writing a
"driver" for LSI SAS), and I would like to write that code in anything
but C. :)

Yes, it's fine---but writing tests that also interact with the monitor
is a bit worse, similar to how qemu-iotests is part shell and part Python.

True...  but I can still dream. ;)
