I've just built a sid Debian live image, which does indeed no longer generate
any xorg.conf on startup, so modifying that probably doesn't make sense.

I think the proper way to solve this is to get the Xorg and virtualbox
packages to properly play together to get an autodetecting scenario, so I
guess we can stop discussing this here :-)

Ah, this is exactly what the unstable version of virtualbox-ose-guest-x11

Regarding my other question about persistence, any suggestions? I am prepared
to invest some time to prepare a prober patch, but it would be nice to have
some perspective on getting it merged.
