This would come in handly A LOT when making multi-os bootable usb sticks with things like grub. Not to mention I don't think this is implemented in any other virtualization program either.

Forgot to mention, another very cool thing would be making "Virtual USB Drive Images" like the floppy disks, this would be much faster that using a usb stick and with 2 VM's you could easily and quickly test things just by unmounting back and fourth. If you then enable writing that image onto a real USB stick, man you're on to something.
