    Interesting... So how to tasks get *into* a container? And can they
    ever get back "out" of a container? Are most processes on the system
    initially not in a container? And then they can be stuffed in a container?
    And then containers can be moved around or be isolated from each other?

    And, is pid virtualization the point where this happens? Or is that
    a slightly higher level? In other words, is pid virtualization the
    full implementation of container isolation? Or is it a significant
    element on which additional policy, restrictions, and usage models
    can be built?
