I don't see any real need for that since you already can execute:

# KVMGROUP='users' sh qemu-kvm.SlackBuild

but anyway i can add "export KVMGROUP='kvm'" to /etc/profile.d/sbo.sh
to keep it the same as now.

Can you do a symlink from /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 to
/usr/bin/qemu-kvm? So you don't break the normal name that one has
been using ;)

BTW, there's also the next binaries inside qemu-kvm package:

/usr/bin/qemu-img => /usr/bin/qemu-kvm-img
/usr/bin/qemu-nbd => /usr/bin/qemu-kvm-nbd
/usr/bin/qemu-ga => /usr/bin/qemu-kvm-ga
/usr/bin/qemu-io => /usr/bin/qemu-kvm-io

Are they going to be renamed also? If so, man pages also would be
renamed?. At this moment i think there's a conflict with *qemu*
package, isn't there?

/usr/man/man1/qemu-img.1.gz => /usr/man/man1/qemu-kvm-img.1.gz
/usr/man/man1/qemu.1.gz => /usr/man/man1/qemu-kvm.1.gz
/usr/man/man8/qemu-nbd.8.gz => /usr/man/man8/qemu-kvm-nbd.8.gz
