wanted to use it over a telnet: character device.  This patch
enables this and changes the syntax of the -curses argument to take
a character device.

Surely it would be better to introduce a new option and leave the old
one (which people might be using) behaving the old way ?

-curses hasn't been in any official release (well, kvm-63 will be out soon), so users haven't yet had a chance to rely on it.

I'm on the fence because while I like what I've posted, I'd like to eventually tunnel the curses data over VNC in which case, having a separate option makes sense. -curses would imply that the GUI would be rendered with curses.

So, 'qemu -curses' does what you think, 'qemu -cga telnet::1024,server -vnc :2' does what I want and still lets you interact with VNC, and then down the road 'qemu -cga vnc:org.qemu.vga -vnc :2' allows CGA tunneling over VNC.

But this is really future looking so I'm somewhat indifferent to what we do now. I'll update the patch according to whatever the consensus is.
