All of these are very useful patches indeed. But there's at least 4 gui toolkit
available for SDL, which could ensure:

- a single developpement and a uniform look
- no need for a bigger space on screen (the controls could be like OSD)
- independent of hw/os architecture (the original aim somehow of qemu?)

I agree this is poking inside qemu itself, which can be considered
"a bad thing" (tm). I'm looking at the 4 gui toolkits I mentionned.

Let's open the discussion in a separate thread.
