Unrelated, but Paolo once said helpers are not tools.

I think helpers is not a good word.  However, if an executable:

- can be started directly by QEMU, or is not useful without an emulator

- is usually too complex for a user to run manually

then it should be documented in docs/interop (not docs/tools). Their sources however can be in tools/, that's not a problem at all.


Unrelated too, but allow me to ask:

Should we move the tools (qemu-img, qemu-io, qemu-nbd...etc) to the tools directory (virtiofsd seems to feel alone there)?
