[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Experimental support for show/hide VM window

Hi All !

The basic idea, is that at any given time I may have some VMs running
in background / Server mode on my workstation, without consuming
precious desktop taskbar space.

While tinkering around with code, I came across interesting X11
feature - Map/Unmap, and immediately recalled -- Wish #6798.

I wrote a patch to exploit this feature on X11 / Linux hosts.
I hope someone helps with equivalent functionality for Windows and Mac
OS X hosts.

Suggested icon for GUI designers - eye with "X" in an ellipse. (for
now I use "discard" icon)
