I agree.  The problem is that qemu lacks a proper interface for
asynchronous commands so an unresponsive guest could freeze the monitor.
 QMP is undergoing a significant overhaul as a result of the new QAPI
framework.  It is my understanding that this new framework will provide
a robust async interface, allowing us to re-enable balloon stats.
