I've sponsored a virtualbox update from Gianfranco before and the process
was smooth and successful. I think virtualbox is an ideal candidate for
MRE status, as some bugs are beyond what a maintainer could be expected to
do, and targetted fixes for those issues would bring our packages further
from what the upstream virtualbox team tests.

I think allowing Gianfranco to perform MREs will improve the user
experience of virtualbox and improve our overall security.
