Luiz Capitulino - Oct. 1, 2010, 6:19 p.m.
This file contains a copy of the following information from the
qemu-monitor.hx file:

    o QObject handlers entries
    o QMP documentation (all SQMP/EQMP sections)

Right now it's only used to generate the QMP docs in QMP/, but
next commits will turn this into QMP's command dispatch table.

It's important to note that QObject handlers entries are going
to get duplicated: they will exist in both QMP's and HMP's
dispatch tables.

This will be fixed in the near future, when we add a proper
QMP call interface and HMP is converted to use it. This way we
can completely drop QObject handlers entries from HMP's tables.

NOTE: HMP specific constructions, like "q|quit", have been dropped.

+                        QMP Supported Commands
+                        ----------------------
+
+This document describes all commands currently supported by QMP.
+
+Most of the time their usage is exactly the same as in the user Monitor, this
+means that any other document which also describe commands (the manpage,
+QEMU's manual, etc) can and should be consulted.
+
+QMP has two types of commands: regular and query commands. Regular commands
+usually change the Virtual Machine's state someway, while query commands just
+return information. The sections below are divided accordingly.
+
+It's important to observe that all communication examples are formatted in
+a reader-friendly way, so that they're easier to understand. However, in real
+protocol usage, they're emitted as a single line.
+
+Also, the following notation is used to denote data flow:
+
+-> data issued by the Client
+<- Server data response
+
+Please, refer to the QMP specification (QMP/qmp-spec.txt) for detailed
+information on the Server command and response formats.
+
+NOTE: This document is temporary and will be replaced soon.
+
+1. Stability Considerations
+===========================
+
+The current QMP command set (described in this file) may be useful for a
+number of use cases, however it's limited and several commands have bad
+defined semantics, specially with regard to command completion.
+
+These problems are going to be solved incrementally in the next QEMU releases
+and we're going to establish a deprecation policy for badly defined commands.
+
+If you're planning to adopt QMP, please observe the following:
+
+    1. The deprecation policy will take efect and be documented soon, please
+       check the documentation of each used command as soon as a new release of
+       QEMU is available
+
+    2. DO NOT rely on anything which is not explicit documented
+
+    3. Errors, in special, are not documented. Applications should NOT check
+       for specific errors classes or data (it's strongly recommended to only
+       check for the "error" key)
+
+2. Regular Commands
+===================
+
+Server's responses in the examples below are always a success response, please
+refer to the QMP specification for more details on error responses.
