If you hadn't snipped the text right above the lines you quoted, you'd
see that it was Alan Cox suggesting that running Windows in qemu might
be an option that is easier for some companies than Wine is. qemu _is_
an emulator that tries to be speed-smart; reading Alan's further
comments perhaps it can be significantly better than I realized at
speed. But thanks anyways.
