no, I usually don't mean vboxshell if I type VBoxManage ;)

I know that many python programmers are highly allergic to C++ code, but 
with VirtualBox it's just a fact that the vast majority of code which 
uses the API is C++. And it should give you at least a hint what the 
usual sequence of API calls is.

Nikolay provided python code which does the job, but the same 
information could be easily distilled out of VBoxManageDisk.cpp in the 
VirtualBox sources. Or by looking at the API documentation.
