There's two options, we can default to installing the whoile of QEMU
which includes all arch emulators and KVM (eg, the qemu RPM), or 
default to just the x86 emulators (which includes KVM, but only if
non an x86 host - we qemu-system-x86 RPM).   I think its probably 
worth going for 'qemu-system-x86'  in comps, because the non-x86
archs are not really used very much and quite alot less stable.
