Hi Asheesh & Antonio
First thanks for the interest on these boxes.

After some second thought, I agreee on that.
I will re enable the vboxfs in the Vagrant Box and move that to a
"contrib" namespace.

I still find it would be interesting to have official vagrant base
boxes, generated from the Debian infrastructure, but LXC should be used
for that.

@asheesh: My idea would be to implement this in the next two weeks, as I
am going on Holidays now. BTW sandstorm is an interesting project !

If people want to have a main-only Virtualbox image, I am looking for
help to maintain these !
