I really dislike that. I am trying to get rid of the unsafe variants (e.g. now
defaulting to host-model instead of host-passthrough). I do not want to give
users new ways of hurting themselves.

Unless I misunderstood Eduardo, I think his versioning approach is actually 
in regard to migration, no?
I z terms, you can still say -cpu z13  which is just an alias to z13v1 z13v2 
Assuming that the version is checked this will be safe.
