[vbox-dev] How-to bring VirtualBox VM window to focus ?

update: I was able to solve the Linux case (by help of IRC #python channel)

Just 3 lines of code:
import gtk
wrapped_window = gtk.gdk.window_foreign_new(int(hwnd))
However, this requires end-users to manually disable "Focus stealing
prevention" in KDE.
Any ideas on how-to make it work out-of-the-box ?
