app-emulation/vmware-workstation-10 and friends

I finally got around to import the ebuilds for the new VMware Workstation and Player versions into the main tree. Thanks a lot to all the contributors on Bugzilla. Right now the ebuilds do not have any keywords yet since I have not tested the installation results at all myself, so if you want to try installing the software, remember you need a license for VMware Workstation, and 10 != 9 :], and then keyword it manually in /etc/portage/package.keywords as follows:
=app-emulation/vmware-modules-279* **
=app-emulation/vmware-workstation-10* **
=app-emulation/vmware-player-6* **
(Obviously this will only work on x86 and amd64, since the software only exists for these architectures.) Feedback of all sorts is welcome on the version bump bugs for VMware Workstation and the kernel modules and for VMware Player.
