[feature request] virt-manager for VirtualBox -> fixed upstream as far as upstream policy allows

Description (last modified by michael) (diff)
Virt-manager is a graphical console for managing vm's, just like VMware-server has. It's open source and will be included in Ubuntu Hardy ( https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuVirtualisationHostSpec).
This is currently lacking for the vb-product. If you want to have headless vm's (start them up in vrdp-mode), there should be a way to control them efficiently. Also, not be able to see any output of the vm's (especially during booting) other than adding manually a vnc-server into the session it self is in my opinion a major feature gap. Also in this, virt-manager provides a solution by providing an embedded vnc-server. http://virt-manager.et.redhat.com/
Currently, several other virtualisation products like vmware, xen are supported, but not vb. Is there any change vb is included in the supported vm-engines?
Note: also supported is qemu and because vb is partially based on qemu, this should not be very difficult?
