Hate to reply to myself, but I forgot to say that I have configured 
tm_context.sh from NFS to do the job for VMWare. It could be unsuitable, 
I do realize that now, but still, no attempt to modify VMX file or 
somehow point VMWare in the direction of that ISO file is ever made. So, 
I still think that there is something missing.

Question is, how trivial would it be to supplement the missing 
functionality? Should it be done from Java (as some parts of the VMWare 
driver do)?

CLONE   = vmware/tm_clone.sh
LN      = dummy/tm_dummy.sh
MKSWAP  = dummy/tm_dummy.sh
MKIMAGE = dummy/tm_dummy.sh
DELETE  = vmware/tm_delete.sh
MV      = dummy/tm_dummy.sh
CONTEXT = nfs/tm_context.sh
