This is a big effort but a config file is the right long term solution.

For which use case? management-full or management-less?

Both. A config file will be useful not just for expressing the functionality we have today, but also for describing the guest's environment in greater detail. For instance, if you want to support a bunch of different kinds of embedded systems, it would be very nice if the machine description was a config file instead of hard coded such that it was easy to tweak what hardware was present for the particular embedded system.

A managed system will want to supply arguments out of a central database. For a management-less use case, the config file is a hassle.

As long as all options are still settable via command line (or stdio), then it's not at all a hassle.
