  i'm not sure that's necessary, i just think there needs to be a
clear list of what's installable and the corresponding dependencies,
qemu-wise.  i took a quick look at the output from "yum search qemu"
on f11 and, from that, it looks like the following:

* if you want simple system emulation for a single architecture,
then:

    # yum install qemu-system-<arch>    {arch=arm,mips,ppc,...}

* if you want user-mode emulation for *any* architecture, then you
need to separately:

    # yum install qemu-user

* if you want to manipulate disk images, then:

    # yum install qemu-img

* if you want to install *all* of the above as a meta-package,
including system emulation for all supported architectures, then:

    # yum install qemu

* if you want a graphical qemu front-end:

    # yum install qemu-launcher

* if you want KVM debugging and diagnostic tools:

    # yum install qemu-kvm-tools

  did i miss anything?  if i were new to qemu in f11, that's pretty
much all i'd want to know -- what's available and what i need for what
i'm trying to do.

  and, no, i'm not done with dumb questions yet.  you only wish.
