[feature-request] GUI: Please support *.VFD floppy image format

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:

For better compatibility with MS Virtual PC, please support the *.VFD (Virtual Floppy Disk) floppy image format in VBox GUI.

Currently the VBox GUI only supports *.IMG format.

File->Virtual Media Manager->Floppy Images->*.img

The format is really a RAW one, usually formatted with FAT12, which means that *.VFD and *.IMG are essentially the same. This means that no additional code needs to be written for backend, but only Qt-GUI file open dialog must support *.VFD extension.

Since VirtualBox v4.0 redesigns this whole area, it would be nice to add with v4.0.
