I was under the impression that the only viable option for that purpose
was Virtualbox, but it's license is pretty dubious (GPLv2 + some useful
parts proprietary). Oracle has a history of bad behaviour with regard to
licenses, so I would not put all of our eggs in this basket.

Still, with 3 months time, a student should be able to pull off making
it as friendly as possible, but it would have to be repeatable, like you
say, "almost automatic".

It would be even better if it was "fully automatic" that way we could
have regular builds.
