I appreciate the effort that some are making to develop a GUI for QEMU - 
There's a few project I see that trying to achieve this. But, I wish 
they all could come together and work together to develop a nice GUI. I 
would like to see a sub-project exist in the QEMU site so all can come 
and contribute to that effort.

Geez, why not ask for world peace while you are at it.  One GUI?  So
which toolkit?  Pick Gtk and watch the K folk whine.  Ok, so KDE it is. 
Oops, now the Gnomes are all over ya.  And of course since I suspect a
non-trivial percentage of QEMU users are on Windows, Solaris, etc. they
ain't gonna like either of those choices much.

Face it, putting a GUI on something like QEMU is going to require at
least a one per desktop/platform effort.  And that can best be kept with
the GNOME/KDE/etc software repositories because they require constant
updating on the schedule of the rest of the desktop environment to stay

Think of it like mkisofs/cdrecord/growisofs/cdrdao vs the abundance of
graphical front ends that all make use of them.  Nobody has to totally
reinvent the wheel because those solid CLI only parts can be reused by
each project and each graphical environment gets a totally native (ok,
several) GUI CD/DVD authoring/burning program instead of one crappy
ported program.

That may not be true - I'm not sure but I think something reasonable could be done in Java. There is certainly a Java VNC client available which could play a part.
