[vbox-dev] Writing extensions for VirtualBox and announcement of a general purpose VM controller project

Hello VirtualBox hackers,

I'm a student developing an open source project called VMController [1],
which is a general pupose Virtual Machine controller infrastructure, in
collaboration with David Garcia Quintas and scientists at CERN. VMController
will be used by BOINC-VM [2] and LHC++ at HOME [3], CERN. VMController, uses
python bindings of VirtualBox to control the same.

I'm excited about the new VirtualBox 4.0 version. I'm curious about the
extension packs. From some news sources, it sounds like addons to a web
browser? If so, how may I start with development of one.
VMController is broken with the new 4.0 version, if writing extension allows
full exposure to VirtualBox interfaces (the same that were provided by the
python/java bindings) and a clean deployment/packaging method, I would like
to rewrite VMController as a VirtualBox extension/addon. Please let me know
about the feasibility of such an extension.
Kindly point me to any tutorial or manual about writing extensions, as I
could n't find one from VirtualBox's website, and/or any other update.
Thanks in advance.
