FWIW, since Virtualbox itself is already not in main, I don't see much
of a point in distributing a "main-only" vagrant box where the main
feature of vagrant, which is sharing your source directory with the
guest VM, does not work out of the box.

This whole mess is why I decided to use and maintain vagrant-lxc and the
debian boxes for the 'lxc' provider; everything just works without
anything that is not in main.
