George, I wouldn't worry too much about it ... you'll just waste a bit more
disk space and memory (both are pretty cheap these days) by not having your
vservers' filesystems unified. I've built a couple systems using
XFS+vserver, back in the ctx6-7 days, and they work fine, just don't do any
of the vserver unification stuff, 'cause it won't behave.
