As was stated by the OP, this is for DOS games. So, there is no "nothing 
to be done". Further, you are assuming everybody uses Linux. What makes 
you think so?

Besides, your "nice" would not do the same thing, you know? You'd need 
_another_ tast _using_ the CPU to slow down QEmu. Which would burn through 
the battery like hell.
