I realize that this is a large feature request, so I understand if this gets shelved for, say, version 4.0. But I think it's a good idea.

Mac OS X applications are stored in .app bundles, as you know, and other files are stored similarly. I think it would be great if VirtualBox VMs were stored in bundles that were self-contained. This would allow for Spotlight integration (see ticket 4999), easier sharing of VMs between users, and also open the door for more friendly Time Machine-friendly storage (see 5555). Other possible fixes include making them .app bundles to solve 2574.
