Package: virtualbox
Version: 4.2.10-dfsg-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

While the move of virtualbox to contrib because of the BIOS issue is sad
news, I fail to see why it should affect the guest tools.  This is
especially harmful as virtualbox is often used to mess with the installer.

A trivial patch to do so attached.
