Default qemu/qemu-kvm announcement draft

Hi,
since qemu/qemu-kvm 0.12.x kqemu is no longer supported.
kqemu package is removed from the repositories, if you still need kqemu
support please compile 0.11 series and kqemu module yourself.

greetings

A few things:

* the contradictory message in the package itself:
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> Since kernel 2.6.29:
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> Qemu package now provides standard qemu with kvm enabled.
[2010-01-08 19:01]
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> PLEASE READ FOR KVM USAGE!
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> Load the correct KVM module, you will need a
KVM capable CPU!
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> Add yourself to the group 'kvm'.
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> Use 'qemu --enable-kvm' to use KVM.
[2010-01-08 19:01]
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> PLEASE READ FOR KQEMU USAGE!
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> You need to install the 'kqemu' package for your kernel.
[2010-01-08 19:01] >>> You need to load the module to use qemu with kqemu.
[2010-01-08 19:01] upgraded qemu (0.11.1-1 -> 0.12.1-1)

* Let's use proper punctuation and capitalization around here. How about this:
With the release of qemu and qemu-kvm 0.12.X, the kqemu kernel module
is no longer supported and will be removed from the repositories. You
can safely uninstall it from your system.

* I had a hard time finding upstream documentation as to why this
deprecation happened, but I am guessing it is because KVM is the new
hotness. If that is correct, it might not hurt to add that to the note
as well.

Yes will change the install message.
Yes there is no mention in the changelogs, really strange.

Ok like this?
echo ">>> Since kernel 2.6.29:"
echo ">>> Qemu package now provides standard qemu with kvm enabled."
echo ""
echo ">>> PLEASE READ FOR KVM USAGE!"
echo ">>> Load the correct KVM module, you will need a KVM capable CPU!"
echo ">>> Add yourself to the group 'kvm'."
echo ">>> Use 'qemu --enable-kvm' to use KVM."
echo ""
echo "With the release of qemu and qemu-kvm 0.12.X, the kqemu kernel module"
echo "is no longer supported and will be removed from the repositories. You"
echo "can safely uninstall it from your system."
