[vbox-dev] 4.2 vboxServiceWrappers.php bug and image request

Hi All,

Attached is a patch for the websrv-php xml stylesheet. Ian, do you mind verifying and then could the vbox developers please apply?

This patch takes into account the safearray definition when emitting a set function for attributes in the php libs. The two affected attributes are "groups" in IMachine and "environment" in IGuestSession. If you want to generate your own modified library you can either change the vboxServiceWrappers.php file with the following diff or run `xsltproc websrv-php.xsl VirtualBox.xidl` (VirtualBox.xidl from the SDK)
