import2vbox: import cloud images or any disk image in virtualbox / vmWare

I needed this for Vagrant but I tought it might be useful for others.

Suppose you created a disk image jessie.raw with the tool of your choice,

vmdebootstrap \
	--size 10G \
	--distribution jessie \
	--grub \
	--arch amd64 \
	--enable-dhcp \
	--image jessie.raw

You can create a OVF VirtualMachine description based on your disk image
import2vbox --memory 4096 jessie.raw

And import it straight away:
VBoxManage import jessie.ovf

This could be useful if you want to run a disk image in a environment
where Qemu/KVM is not available.
