FYI - I have tried this but I'm afraid 3D acceleration support with Bumblebee is totally shite on Linux.

I think you're wrong. If your virtual machines works without errors ("Hardware graphics acceleration is not available", "No 3D support is available from the host"), it may be because you have activated the "mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = TRUE" option in your vmx configuration file. If so, your virtual machines will explode shortly after boot. Try a game and see.
Many have tried the solution you propose and none of them works. Check out this thread: http://communities.vmware.com/message/2104179#2104179
Moreover, if you see there errors, YOU DO NOT HAVE graphics acceleration active in VMs.
Note: with Bumblebee (optirun vmware) you do not have graphics acceleration.
