Fine with me. That would make introducing the new config file format a
priority, though, even if it can't support every option yet (similar to
-readconfig). I didn't have the impression so far that we are planning
to do that. Is anyone working on it?

Indeed, my plan was to focus on QMP-based configuration, not on configuration file formats.

However I hit the same snag, in that my patches broke -readconfig for -object, -M and -accel. I'm thinking of decoupling config file parsing from QemuOpts, using QDicts instead and moving the QemuOpts part into softmmu/vl.c.
