Hi Anthony, 
To me, this asymmetry between VT and PV domains should not be a problem.
After all, VT depends on Qemu while PV doesn't. People can accept some
different usage between these two. Monitor screen is ready in Qemu and
SDL can display it. So if users find they can use it with SDL while not
with VNC, this kind of asymmetry may be more unfriendly:-)
