Certainly not this way.  The display configuration we have right now is
pretty messy already.  I want clean this up (draft patch series at
https://www.kraxel.org/cgit/qemu/log/?h=lupin/display-cmdline), and this
should be done before adding new stuff.

Also when making this configurable it should be consistent across all
user interfaces we have, which surely is a non-trivial amount of work.
