Interestingly, a lot of what you're documenting here is quite the
opposite to what we want "Fedora virtualization experience" to be e.g.:

  - Users shouldn't necessarily need to know what QEMU is - using 
    virt-manager and virsh more or less makes what hypervisor is
    underneath not terribly important

  - We'd recommend people do "yum install Virtualization" rather than 
    manually installing individual RPMs

  - We don't see "user emulation mode" as being very important - I'd 
    really be very surprised if many people use it

  - We think virt-manager is a much more useful tool for most people 
    than qemu-launcher
