  No problem, thank you to have started this !

  Well as Dan Berrange pointed out, we probably need to provide more
tunable informations for the graphic options (I looked for information
on sdl but really didn't found much), and from the mail exchanged in the
xen-devel list I would expect some kind of SCSI emulation support coming
in the QEmu emulation too.
  I will probably push a version 0.1.3 later today with the optmization
and the current hvm so it will be easier to get more testing done outside
of this list.
