I think I've mentioned many times that I find the QEMU source terribly
difficult to read and hack on. So if you mean "not qemu" from that
point of view, sure, I think it's a very important point. The command
line interface is also "not qemu" for a very good reason too.

As for virtio drivers and such, we're actually following QEMU's
example very closely. I guess we're going to diverge a bit for better
guest isolation but fundamentally I don't see why we'd want to be
totally different from QEMU on that level.
