Maybe for normal users.  Certainly not for developers.  I need stuff
like raising debug level for more verbose logs, enable experimental
features while working on them and similar stuff.  Nothing which I'd
expect libvirt to support directly.

But it is quite inconvenient.

And it also proves that you can't prevent users from passing additional
args to qemu, thereby creating unsupported configurations.  So what was
the point in refusing <emulator args="-foo">...</emulator> support?
