libqemu.so would be a C API.  C is not the first choice for writing GUIs 
or management applications.  So it would need to be further wrapped.

We also need to allow qemu to control the display directly, without 
going through vnc.

Do not meddle in the internals of kernels, for they are subtle and quick to panic.
