I made no commont on what "they" might want, I want to make the rack of
underutilized Windows, BSD and Solaris servers go away. An approach
which doesn't support unmodified guest installs doesn't solve any of my
current problems. I didn't say it was in any way not useful, just not of
interest to me. What needs I have for Linux environments are answered by
jails and/or UML.
