The pkgversion is an opaque string - users/apps should never try to
interpret its contents, because its format can vary arbitrarily between
distros. It is merely intended as an informative string to help the
package maintainer identify which version of QEMU was used when someone
submits a bug reoprt.
IOW it is totally valid to change the command to omit '()', and if anything
breaks that is their own fault for trying to interpret an opaque blob of
