I like that.  While I very often use schroot runners because I basically
already have them set up to use with sbuild, I've found lately during the
Python 3.5 transition in Ubuntu that using qemu images is a more reliable
local test of what actually happens on autopkgtest.ubuntu.com.

+1 for using ~/.config/autopkgtest.conf by default, with of course an option
to pass in a different configuration file.
