Will be great !

Having system tray icon integration on Linux host is gonna be a PITA.
KDE and GNOME have different standards for alpha-channel icons for system tray.

What about standard menu integration?
VMlite has only specific guest applications integrated on host's menu,
not whole guest's menu.
VMware in their "Unity mode" have done a custom menu.
