We don't _need_ to necessarily do that, or not right now.

**However**, this is the main point of spending time designing things
and/or having the kind of conversation we're having here: i.e., if the
design, and the resulting implementation, is generic enough, we may get
that for free, which would be great.

This seems to me to be the case, if we go for George's "vcpuclass=[]"
suggesion, and, even better, it doesn't look like it would make the
code much more difficult to write or complex (wrt to just allowing
"vcpus_big" and "vcpus_little").
