Yes, I'd expect additional options will need to
be addressed.  Currently the only additional
qemu-resident knob is the -mem-prealloc flag
which is enabled by default.  I've removed
support for it here in the interest of simplicity
but it will fall into the existing scheme.

That was intended as an example for no other
reason than it is what I happen to use.  I
suspected it wouldn't be the mount point's
final resting place.
