Just a couple random suggestions:

- Drop SDL/VNC. Make a proper Cairo GUI with a full blown GTK interface. Don't
rely on virt-manager for this. Not that I have anything against virt-manager
but there are many layers between you and the end GUI if you go that route.

- Sandbox the device model from day #1. The size of the Linux kernel interface
is pretty huge and as a hypervisor, it's the biggest place for improvement from
a security perspective. We're going to do sandboxing in QEMU, but it's going to
be difficult. It would be much easier for you given where you're at.

Regards,

Anthony Liguori
