Well, I didn't have the qemu-kvm package installed until I
pulled it in to check the wrapper name.

My point is more that if there's no consensus between distros
about what the wrapper script name should be then as upstream
if we provide a qemu-kvm then we might be helping Fedora/RedHat
but we're just increasing confusion for those distros that
used a different name or have already transitioned away from
the wrapper entirely.
