Using Bridged Adapter, Allow Option for Host Cable/Connection State to Passthrough to Guest

While the ability to set the cable connection state is helpful for testing, I find (especially on a laptop with wired and wireless adapters) that most often I want the host cable state (or equivalent wireless connection state) to pass through to the guest, such as going for home to work and back to home networks, a typical daily example. Currently, I run a batch file on the new network to issue VBoxManage command to do this manually. For guests that obtain their own address from the physical network, it would be a convenient option to have the guest detect the host's connection state and pick-up a new address config on the connection to a new network.
