[vbox-dev] communicating from a frontend directly to a guest.

I have a rather uncommon case where the guest is a specialized linux 
based system for running inside vbox. Right now, the xpcomm based 
host-ui communicates with the guest via tcp, but that's quiet inefficient.

I'd like to directly have some communications channel to the guest. 
Maybe a pci device, maybe usb, whatever makes more sense from the vbox 
side. However, it looks like i need to ship my own vbox then, since 
those things are not exposed through xpcomm. I really want to avoid 
forking of vbox for that tiny enhancement. Is there any other method I 
can use.
