[xubuntu-users] virtualbox issue with linux/version.h and shared folders between guest and host

Quick question on the share...  Why not a sshfs share between the host and
guest?  Both are Linux and don't need the extra load to communicate.  Since
my guest systems are bridged nics I can link via standard practice and
sshfs has been the best generic solution with only installing the ssh and
sshfs package.  If ssh is not desired then other Linux solutions to mount
remote folders should work as well since both systems are already on the
same network.  Hypothetically using the inet (internal network function of
Vbox) should still work if security is an issue.  Pardon my ignorance, but
seems like a lot of trouble here for something that is native to Linux so I
am just curious as to why?  To be sure, these share folder options did help
when I was working on Windows guests; however, Linux to Linux seemed best
to just use the tools available.
