[vbox-dev] VBox screen device

I've faced with somehow unusual task: I need to run some gui application in
vm on host without display, grab vm screen device, ocr it in real time and
send results to network. I know about VBoxHeadless, but it doesn't seem to
be what I want (ocr is slow itself, overhead of compressing+decompressing
video onfly will kill cpu). What is the simpliest (while fast enough) way to
grab vbox display?

host os: linux
guest os: winxp
vbox from http://www.virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk

thx in advance
