And parts of run() would need to be rewritten as well ... I am not sure
it's worth to invest the time.

No, but its quite likely that the host has bash when something as big as
QEMU is already there, or at least that it shouldn't be a huge problem

Ok, stderr from qemu needs to be redirected too then.
I will add an extra param to set file for __*log helpers or helpers that
redirect to stderr.
