[vbox-dev] Specific 3D support in the future

I tried to use OGRE (http://www.ogre3d.org/) in VirtualBox since you
claim to support 3d features and I wanted to try out this combination
for a research demonstrator project. I received the following exception:

OGRE EXCEPTION(3:RenderingAPIException): No GLX FBConfig support on your
display in GLXGLSupport::GLXGLSupport at
/home/student/ogre/RenderSystems/GL/src/GLX/OgreGLXGLSupport.cpp (line 787)

Although I am unsure of that you can interpret this, my question is if
a) this is a bug?
b) if it is not a bug, then do you plan to support this "GLX FBConfig"
in the future?

Essentially, I want to use Gazebo (a robot environment 3D simulator
based on OGRE) in a dynamic deployment profile of the demonstrator we
are constructing. The potential performance penalty of using it on top
of VirtualBox may be prohibitive, but I am currently investigating
