    option: deprecate a few esoteric options from --spice group
    I propose to deprecate the options that have very unclear results, or
    that are unimplemented by drivers. They were added for historical
    reasons, mostly to match with spicec options, but aren't
    user-friendly. Some of them could be moved in spicy options or a new
    debug/tune option group. For now, mark them as deprecated so they can
    be removed in a future release.
    Imho, --spice-preferred-compression is a good candidate too, although
    users may be more familiar with this option, at least the 'off' case
    may have a clear impact.
