Makes setting up a shared folder for virtual machines a bit easier

A metapackage, that creates a folder /mnt/shared with chmod 777, adds a group "vboxsf", adds user "user" to group "vboxsf". Facilitates auto-mounting of shared folders.

Currently only helps using shared folders with VirtualBox a bit easier (as in requiring fewer manual steps from the user). Might in future make use of other virtual machine's shared folders easier.
