    I just thought I'd weigh in on this. As far as our usage pattern is
    concerned, guarantees cannot be met via limits.

    I want to give "x" cpu to container X, "y" cpu to container Y, and "z"
    cpu to container Z.

    If these are percentages, x+y+z must be less than 100.

    However, if Y does not use its share of the cpu, I would like the
    leftover cpu time to be made available to X and Z, in a ratio based on
    their allocated weights.

    With limits, I don't see how I can get the ability for containers to
    make opportunistic use of cpu that becomes available.

    I can see that with things like memory this could become tricky (How do
    you free up memory that was allocated to X when Y decides that it really
    wants it after all?) but for CPU I think it's a valid scenario.
