In general, I strongly dislike passing file descriptors like this.
I find this very useful, and actually think we should encourage it, and also allow passing file descriptors over the monitor (using SCM_RIGHTS). This can help de-privilege qemu. In fact, you can run a guest where qemu doesn't even have permissions to open the backing file.

You can already do this:

    qemu -hdc /proc/self/fd/3 3<>MS-DOS-6.22.img

Not over the monitor.
