I think that is totally beside the point. The question is if it is worth
to continue to support kqemu. And frankly, for that I could not care
less
if there are people _not_ using kqemu if there are enough that _do_ use
kqemu to merit a continuation.

A poll for both users and non-users would make sense IMHO. It should
include reasons for both groups though, i.e. like this:

I use kqemu because:
[ ] old hardware
[ ] *BSD host
....

I don't use kqemu because:
[ ] using kvm instead
[ ] using virtualbox instead
[ ] doesn't work stable for me
...

And what should I answer if I both use kqemu on some (old) hardware, and
kvm otherwise?

Make it multiple choice then, so you can check both "old hardware" and "use kvm". Likewise one could mark both "bsd" + "old hardware" or "use virtualbox" + "not stable".

Could be further refined by a field for the number of machines for each choice, but it starts to become silly then ;)

cheers
