What does 'tunnel curses data over vnc' mean? A new character cell based encoding (vs. pixel-based)?
Yes. I was actually thinking of tunneling the curses data but another option would be a more proper character-based encoding. The advantage of that is that you could also send over fonts.
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.What's -cga?
That would be the second option which controlled what the CGA data was sent over. stdio would be the default. It doesn't have to be -cga.
