Can we put some vercmp checks around messages like this? That way
people only have to see them once (when they upgrade the first time to
a 0.12.x version for the second message). The first message should
really be a post_install message.

And with all that said, why are there two packages in extra if "qemu
package now provides standard qemu with kvm enabled"?
