As long as QEMU supports -M ? it should not be a problem. The -M option
is not scraped from -help output.

If -M is going away, then libvirt _should_ scrape -help output to see
whether to use -M or -machine, rather than blindly using -M.

-M going away will take a while (and will likely never happen).

While that may be true, we've already been bitten in the past by using undocumented commands. See for example commit e997c268efd, where qemu-img silently quit supporting -e, but libvirt had been using it under the assumption that it would continue to work.

I'll work up a patch for this.
