Actually I've just tried it: it's awfully slow and does not support DDE
so that Xorg doesn't dare more than 800x600. You should probably rather
let qemu use the default cirrus, or better, use -vga vmware and install
xserver-xorg-video-vmware, that works for me, and xrandr can be used to
resize at will.

Samuel, still wondering why people insist on running a graphical desktop
on Debian GNU/Hurd although that'll just look exactly like a Debian
GNU/Linux graphical desktop.
