That's the behaviour I'm looking for, too.

I suspect there is a better way to do it, since metacity
already behaves this way.  I.e., an Alt-TAB, Alt-F4, etc. with
the VirtualBox window focused go to the VirtualBox application
and are handled by the guest OS.  I doubt metacity recognizes
a VirtualBox window as special, unless it recognizes some
request made by the window itself.  Or am I wrong?
