Whaaaat? I use Owl as a both VZ and KVM virtualization host without
any bloatware:

gremlin@...l:~ > psg win7
27690 ? Sl 24:24 qemu -enable-kvm -m 512 -display none

 -net tap,script=/etc/qemu/qemu-ifup-lan
 -monitor unix:/tmp/qemu/control/win7.image.sock,server,nowait
 -hda /home/KVM/win7.image

Do you need other KVM features? Qemu has all of them.
Do you want a Web interface? You are welcome to write a non-bloated one.
Do you expect qemu to appear in a mainstream? Everything is possible.
