VBoxManage controlvm cannot change NIC promiscuous mode => Fixed in SVN

Description

The VirtualBox GUI allows setting the promiscuous mode of a network adapter, but there is no corresponding way to do this via a VBoxManage controlvm option. Our use of VMs requires us to script the settings of many VMs at once while they are running -- at least, to the same extent as the GUI can -- so the more control we have via VBoxManage, the better.

Of course, we can do this with a powered-off VM using modifyvm and this option:

--nicpromisc<1-N> deny|allow-vms|allow-all

but we want to do this without powering off the VM.

 See this forum posting for more information.
