It seems to me that this is just one more thing to get us further away
from the upstream QEMU tree and to me, that's a bad thing.  It's not
this one patch in particular but once you get enough of these, it starts
getting hairy.

If you really thing the q command is poorly named, I think you should
make that case to the QEMU community.  It really isn't a Xen specific issue.

If this really is a problem for you, couldn't you just keep the patch
around for your own use?  I haven't seen anyone else complain of this
issue before so I'm not sure it will do anything but confuse other people.
