Ah ok, if this change is approved and used in the future i would
recommend to update system/kvm-kmod/README to delete the mention of
the kvm group. BTW, there's a new version [1] ;)

Interesting, because ATM system/qemu (0.14.1) and system/qemu-kvm
(1.0) are in different version which means they have different content
and there's a conflict between them, but ATM!. So let me see, if
qemu-kvm would depend on qemu then it would be needed to update them
always at the same version so they can play nice or am i seeing a
problem where there's no problem? :)
