albeit such a solution won't keep up with the flexibility of Vbox GA, you 
may still consider specifying  custom resolutions for the the default 
device inside a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf file (e.g. 10-driver-vesa.conf), 
like the one below

Section "Device"
  Identifier   "VBox-Card"
  Driver       "vesa"
  VendorName   "InnoTek"
  BoardName    "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter"
Section "Monitor"
  Identifier   "VBox-Monitor"
  VendorName   "InnoTek"
  ModelName    "VirtualBox Screen"
  HorizSync    1.0 - 1000.0
  VertRefresh  1.0 - 1000.0
  Section "Screen"
  Identifier   "VBox-Screen"
  Device       "VBox-Card"
  Monitor      "VBoxx-Monitor"
  DefaultDepth 24
  SubSection "Display"
    Viewport   0 0
    Depth      24
    Modes      "1368x768" "1280x800" "1024x768"
