I propose a text-only, or small icons version of the guest VM list, as you can only get about 16 guests into a 1280x1024 desktop with the VirtualBox window maximised (smaller icons for the rest of the GUI and unsnapping status/toolbars would help here too).

How about an expand/collapse system (Qt4 Tree widget?) so you could have a folder for Windows, a folder for Linux, a folder for Solaris etc.

Also how about a way to change the sort order - at the moment its alphabetical, how about being able to sort by OS or last access date?

I think a good idea would be to make the guest list more like Nautilus or Windows Explorer, treating the guests like files/folders.

Yes, very interesting idea to make the view customizable.
