Add ability to sort and group virtual computers with tags

Description

I think it would be useful to be able to tag virtuals with some sort of metadata that lived within the .vbox file. These could be keywords or a predefined set of icons (which would really just be another integer value of 1-255, or whatever). Then being able to filter the list of virtuals based on the metadata would be useful for managing large lists of virtuals.

In my case, I have a bunch of virtuals that I want to archive and I'd like to be able to tag them, regardless of the grouping, so I can work through them one-by-one or give that task to someone else. It would potentially allow grouping by more than the one level that's offered now. Other examples might be to group virtuals by OS, company, department, maintenance schedule, virtuals with problems, by network, etc.
