[vbox-dev] [PATCH] VirtualBox GUI improvement - hides disabled options

Its a common practice in GUI (at least in our GUI) to not hide but just 
disable currently unused widgets.
Note: That is commonly because of layouting system which updates window 
geometry after any widget hidden/shown. This can cause: 1. widget 
jumping which is not desirable; 2. current window size change which is 
not desirable.
So, we will not apply such patches unless there will be particular 
reason to do that (for example very large and/or rarely used widgets 
could be hidden in some cases).
Thank you for understanding.

/WBR, Sergey Dubov/
