Make supported types of networking separte installation features

I think it would make sense to separate virtualbox host-only network and its dedicated adapter into a separate installation feature, which might be even disabled by default. If the user is not planning to use host-only network, then he will not select this feature for installation, so the installation then wouldn't be creating new adapter. Similarly, bridged networking might be yet another feature, and users who don't plan to use it, would avoid binding Virtualbox Bridged Networking Driver to all adapters. If later the user changes their mind, he will modify the installation and add he feature.

("feature" in the above is the term of Windows Installer; currently there's feature on the whole networking, and another on Pithon support).

Currently the networking option includes both host-only and host interface networking. It might make sense to distinguish between both though.

Done in v3.1.0 (in Windows host installer).
