You are already able to recreate any older instance of a box and it will 
work perfectly, including networking and shared folders via NFS - just 
not with the VirtualBox Guest Additions or if you have the vbguest 
plugin installed.

Perhaps I should mention I don't use the GA myself - I never saw them 
being worth the trouble, except for improved video performance on 
desktop installations.  Maybe it just doesn't fit my use case, as they 
seem to be quite popular with other users.

Best regards,
