It's not part of the VirtualBox Open Source Edition. The reason is that 
it's difficult to avoid using anything from the various Microsoft 
development kits (samples, code snippets) when developing a filesystem.

Releasing it under GPL is out of question, and even other licensing will 
be difficult (and involve lawyers).
