oh thats just a crappy argument, why should Linux carry other free OSes?

Like its great that *BSD + OpenSolaris exist, but really shouldn't they have their own developers who contribute these sort of features to them? not wait for Linux developers to help them.

It's not about carrying other free OSes, nobody is asking the linux developers to do any work on FreeBSD etc.. But qemu contains tons of stuff that have _nothing at all_ to do with linux. Keeping that stuff away from other OSes to make the development faster would be antisocial, and let's face it, qemu is not going to stay portable if it were to be integrated into the linux development tree.
