Maybe it's possible to implement the network connections
in a vserver as a sort of virtual ethernet devices. so
issueing an ifconfig command gives you a list of the virtual lo device
and the virtual ethernet device(s).

loopback devices - ie. 127.0.0.1 within each vserver - so it is not shared
between other vservers - and not publicly available...
