You can have that now. The shell script called vqemu makes using a configuration
file for qemu easy. It just uses the config file to figure out which command
line parameters to pass to qemu. (I'd expect the .qmu config file to be more
bochs-like myself (the inability to change the default IRQ/IO addrs can be
frustrating when installing a new OS in qemu for the first time).) The caveat
is that the shell script won't work in Windows unless (maybe) you use Cygwin
