I noticed VeeWee both mounts the guest additions ISO image in the virtual machine, as well as copies it in buildinfo.rb. In addition, I haven't seen any definitions take advantage of the copied image yet.

Wouldn't it be better to just use the virtual CD, foregoing both the scp-part and the manual wget from many definitions?

good thinking but,

the trick is to mount the iso images at the correct time. Some os-es need a cd to boot, others don't.
Uploading it with scp makes it easier to control the flow of boot with OS CD if needed, then first boot scp iso files, then continue.

But VeeWee currently adds two virtual CDs - a boot CD, and the guest additions CD. Both are available at all times, so they're both usable at will. Am I missing something?
