That's great news! Awesome!

Side note: Will we still need to carry Xorg hacks? (if so, how does qemu vs. 
kvm accelerated qemu make use of these... iirc these were based on cpuid of 
the VM which used to be different between qemu and kvm. Or is this no longer

Question in this regard: Is the kvm module still loaded via an (now qemu-kvm 
provided?) init-script? 
I'd like to make use of the kvm kernel module for FAUmachine as well, but 
would like to avoid shipping another init script to load the module. Any 
hints here? (please note: FAUmachine changes in this regard aren't targeted 
for karmic, at least for karmic+1 to get FAUmachine+kvm kernel module working 
good together).
