Okay, I have patched VBox 4.3.16 (latest stable) with python 3 patches
from here:

And hurray it builds ! (after disabling java bindings)

Host: Debian Linux 8 x64 BETA
This host has both python 2.7 and python 3.4, both x64, installed.

Problem is: python2 works so far, but python3 doesn't initializes.
(python 2.7.was tested for VM start/stop and networking)

$ python3
Python 3.4.2rc1+ (default, Sep 30 2014, 00:30:30)
[GCC 4.9.1] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from vboxapi import VirtualBoxManager
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named 'vboxapi'

I have build a kmk packing.
root at portege-d8:/opt/VirtualBox#

Looking at files:
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  229400 Oct  7 22:21 VBoxPython2_7.so
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  229400 Oct  7 22:21 VBoxPython.so

python3 is nowhere to be found.
