It'd be great to include that recommendation then..

Virtualbox has the advantage of being specified in a text format (so
we could ship enough scripts that the entire master and slave
environment could be built with a single shell command).  Ideally this
would be as simple as the regular tutorial to get up and running, so
that users can focus on playing around with things, rather than setup.
