Got it.  Of course, you can't really talk about aqemu without talking
about qemu as it is just a front end.  The reason aqemu was dropped was
when qemu added features and changed command line options, aqemu failed.

Since qemu is now 2.8/2.9 series and was 2.6/2.7 when aqemu-0.9.2 was
released, we need to do a bit more testing for SBo. I don't mind - I
liked aqemu back when and was sad when it went dormant.
