Feature request: automatic snapshots with merge

Description

How about adding auto snapshots with auto merge - In other words the system could be configured to automatically create a snapshot before booting the vm and them merge the snapshot on the next on two successful snapshots thereafter.

[snapshot1] -> [snapshot2] -> [snapshot3]

[merge sbapshot1]

This feature would be great and helps to eliminate creating manual snapshots. It could event be useful in the event of (guess) system failure.

Auto snapshots could be enabled at anytime. We could event enable it after taking a few manual snapshots

[manual_snapshot1] -> [manual_snapshot2] -> [auto_snapshot]

Well, this is even more relevant now, with VBox 3.1.0 and it's Branched Snapshots feature. VMware calls a similar feature "auto-saving". Should be easy to do with v3.1.0 engine.
