First I gotta get some sleep, then I gotta deliver the actual embedded
project, that uses Aboriginal Linux, early next week.

After those things are done, it can be time to experiment with new
versions of qemu, Aboriginal Linux, and even the graphics library I use
for it.  A little late to be changing horses right now.

The client wants another project after this one that uses this one as
the base, so updating stuff after next weeks delivery is all good.

On the other hand, I do intend to squeeze in an upgrade of my
workstation OS to Ubuntu 12.04 soon after this project ends.  So might
be better to just do that first, and get an updated qemu for free.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
