[vbox-dev] Patch to set description in VBoxManage

Currently, the only way to set the description of a VM (shows in the
lower right of the overview display in the graphical UI)
programmatically is to edit the XML file and add a description element
there. The attached patch adds the functionality to just call

VBoxManage modifyvm MY_VM_NAME --description 'My First VM'

I hereby license the attached patch under MIT License.

Best regards,
