Information now can be passed through a new RAW attribute, DATA_VMX. Information passed must scape any double quote (") using a backslask (\"), and multiple lines must be defined with \n. Example

RAW = [ TYPE = "vmware",
DATA_VMX="pciBridge0.present = \"TRUE\"\nguestOS=\"Otheos-64\""]

This will add the following to the pertinent .vmx file

pciBridge0.present = "TRUE"
guestOS="Otheos-64"

Not closing since this needs to be added into the documentation.
