As far as I can tell, virt-manager doesn't use the -drive option, but
just passes the name of the hard disk image as the last command line
argument.  That -drive option has a lot of parameters.  I have no idea
which I should set, or to what, or how to do that in the context of

The virt-manager concept seems nice, but I abandoned it after using it
for only a short time in F-10 because (a) it didn't give me an easy
way to see what options it ultimately passed to qemu-kvm, and (b) it
didn't give me a way to fiddle with nonstandard options.  It looks
like I'm probably going to abandon it again in F-11 after only using
it for a short time, for exactly the same reasons.
