I made a proposal some month ago based on xml:

I use this style of xml property lists for the configuration of the vm of Q (slightly alter by now).
Q is a OS X port of QEMU http://www.kberg.ch/q

I ran recently into some troubles with arguments that can appear multiple times, like -net and -redir. I'm now about to changes my configuration files. Having a well defined style of configuration files would help making simple guest packages, that could be used on multiple systems...

If we'd go for a config file at all with such a complicated structure, i see no reasons why to choose anything else than xml for it. We have tons of xml libs that can be used for gui's (think perl, tk, python etc...). Certainly better every dude writing it's own XuPeRpArSeR that will be broken and compatible after a major change in qemu ... Another choice would be the pure rc (just 'item = value' lines) without any supersmart blocks.

xml style or rc style, please no hack in betweeen :)
