Support Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Guest

The Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) installer software license agreement (the regular install, not the server) states:
"... you are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license: [...] (iii) to install, use and run up to two (2) additional copies or instances of the Apple Software within virtual operating system environments on each Mac Computer you own or control that is already running the Apple Software."
Attempts to boot the 10.7 installer under VirtualBox 4.1.0 running on a Mac OS X system that is supported by Lion results in a
"This version of Mac OS X is not supported on this platform!"
message early in the boot process inside the virtual machine. See http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/18/make-an-os-x-lion-boot-disc/ for instructions on how to make a Mac OS X Lion install disk or else acquire one of the Mac OS X Lion installation bootable flash drives from AppleCare.
