Allow network drive mapping too all shared folders

Description

When I used VMware I could map a network drive (under Windows XP guest) to all shared folders within the host (Windows Vista). This was easy because when I went to: My Network Places » Entire Network » VMware Shared Folders

There was a "folder" holding all shared folders and I could just map that folder to a network drive.

This doesn't seem to be possible with VirtualBox. When I go to "VirtualBox Shared Folders" in the network, I see one entry by shared folder and I have to map each folder to a network drive, which sucks if I have a bunch of shared folders.

Is it possible to do the same as VMware does in a future release?

Sorry, forgot to change this to enhancement, obviously this is not a defect.

That indeed makes sense and there is already an internal ticket for this enhancement. But with a low priority.

The priority needs to be upped. It should have been built in at the start.
