In addition to being slow, it's also not free.  In any sense of the
word.  Bochs is shareware last I checked, so you're supposed to pay
for it if you use it.  The source code is available, but the license
didn't even resemble open source from what I could tell.  We might be
able to get a few hints from it, but we'd be in trouble if we used
anything directly...
