After a quick test, it seems you can mix spice or vnc with qxl or cirrus as you like.
It would be nice if someone more experience with qemu/spice could confirm.

Well, depends ;) In current upstrem (and Fedora 14) you can mix and match as you like as long as you have a single display only.

Multiheading with multiple qxl devices requires spice though, vnc exposes the primary display only.

Also older spice deployments are more restrictive. In RHEL-5 spice+qxl depend on each other. In RHEL-6 you can display anything using spice, but rendering qxl on non-spice stops working as soon as the guest loads the qxl drivers.

Oh, and you can activate both spice and vnc at the same time.

- should --graphics spice imply --video qxl?

That would be a good idea.

Indeed. Even though the other combinations work and can be used if there is some reason spice gives best results when combined with qxl.
