I am sorry, too, but I don't agree with any of your points
0.) xf86-video-vmware-11.0.3-i486-1.txz is a driver and would not be an extra package, but rather added to the existing other drivers!
1a.) I am using Porteus within VMware und not VMware within Porteus why there is no need for a module, besides maybe a VMware-Tools module.
1b.) I can not share VMware Workstation as module, since it is a commercial product, but you can use VMware Player if you wanted, but maybe Virtualbox is more ideal from a free point of view?
2.) Come on. Just 30 Kb more is not that big of a deal and actually it was already included in slax and slax-remix before.
3.) In all that years I never experienced any big problems with it and used slax, slax-remix and porteus in VMware as well as Virtualbox
4.) See 1a.) and 1b.)
