Yes, there are still some things to do. While the core virtualization
stuff is very complex, it is already being handled by our developers and
should be done soon. This includes all the kernel extension stuff, too.

However, there are lots of things that could be done:

- port the Qt GUI to OS X
- use the OS X equivalent of "DirectDraw" for the GUI screen rendering
(currently using SDL which seems to not work well on OS X)
- make Host Interface Networking work (IIRC there is something TAP-like
on OS X)
- create a .pkg Installer
- test

VBox is not related to kqemu, its VMM is much more complex but luckily
also very portable.
