Description

It would help a lot if there were guest additions rpms available instead of only a custom shell script that somehow compiles and installs them. This would allow to easily create a live medium that includes the guest additions. Please provide the rpms at least for RHEL 5.x and derivates. For e.g. Fedora one can probably already use the guest additions rpms from RPMFusion. Off course it would be a lot better, if the X drivers are included in the upstream Xorg project, so they are just available anywhere.

We can't do that. too much effort. The most important Linux distributions already provide guest additions.
