    My opinion is that this is a duplication of effort and we'd be better
    off if everyone contributed to enhancing virtio, which already has
    widely deployed guest drivers and non-Linux guest support.

    It may have merit if it is proven that it is technically superior to
    virtio (and I don't mean some benchmark in some point in time; I mean
    design wise). So far I haven't seen any indications that it is.
