[OT] VirtualBox guest additions support for OpenBSD

Darren S.
Unsure if this is a lost cause, but I continue to hope for VBox guest
additions support for OpenBSD one day. Recent VBox + OpenBSD releases
and CPU virtualization features have smoothed out issues encountered
in the past. Usability enhancements on the guest additions end seems
to be the one main gap at this point.

I just wanted to tap the community here to ask any other interested
users to (kindly, professionally) lend support to the enhancement
ticket to voice interest in acheiving this.

I am also interested in this feature, but here is lifehack I use to share
clipboard and workaround poor desktop experience of vesa(4):
I run X server on my host machine, and redirect output to it using DISPLAY
env var.
So, all apps are running on OpenBSD/VBox but with full screen and shared
clipboard because they use my host X11 server.
I also use smbclient to share files.
