And every computer I've ever used already has a method to do that.  In
DOS I used batch files, VMS command files, Unix shell scripts, windows

What is the difference between creating a configuration file that has
qemu options or making a shortcut with qemu options?  Either way you
have a file with expressions that have to be looked up in a manual.

I prefer the short cut method, to eliminate a file.  With a
configuration file, I have to have qemu.exe, qemu.conf, and the qemu
shortcut to click on.  Since I have to have the shortcut anyway, why
have the configuration file?  Adding layers does not make it easier.

It could even be self describing... 'qemu --help'.  For even more
information, you could 'man qemu'!

Now, if someone were to write a qemu configuration wizard that for some
on foreseen reason can't modify the shortcut, then I'm on board.
