[Qemu-devel] Feature Request: command line option to validate params without starting an image

I'm currently writing a large scale image-based testing system.
(for background info) http://ali.as/pita/
Part of this involves a wrapper for Qemu to launch images with generated
However currently I have no way way to write unit tests for this code
that I can determine.
What would be extremely useful would be a command line option I could
add to the beginning (or end) of the options ... say -z to pick
something at random.
This would cause qemu to do all it's normal pre-startup procedures
(parse the options, preconfigure and precheck as much stuff as possible)
and then bail out before allocating the memory or starting the system
(while somehow confirming the params were ok).
I'm not sure how much work this would be, but it would be
extraordinarily useful when writing wrappers, since the unit tests would
typically try to validate 10-20 different combinations of options, and
booting an image and shutting it down 20 times would be extremely harsh.
