    To build a virtual network device requires code for the device, code
    for routing the device
    in the kernel, some way to tell the router that this machine is hosted
    through the host
    machine's ethernet card, and control of which processes use which
    network devices.

    Way too much work for something intended to be simple and have essentially no
    overhead. All this work only gets jailed processes the ability to use
    The rest I can already do with eth0:1 and the specs for jail(2) from BSD.
