But on the otherhand, I assume 'devAlias' is limited just to QEMU, isn't
it? But target isn't. So I rather have good API than consistent but bad.
Moreover, I can't avoid feeling that we have 'devAlias' only because it
is what we actually get on qemu event (so we don't have to do any
translation, just a simple passthru). However, ff we change this to
target and once QEMU sens events on cdrom eject we need to do a
translation, though.

I'd enhance others to speak up as once this gets written into a stone ...
