But from your description, you're trying to solve just another narrow
problem:

"The end game for me is to replace QEMU/VirtualBox for Linux on Linux

We rarely merge a subsystem to solve one person's problem (esp. when it
is defined as "replace another freely available project", even if you
dislike its command line syntax).
