I wonder how you manage to trim down Woody-vservers so that there remain only
some 20MB that cannot be shared (I suppose those are config files). Is there a
script to automate this? 'Ävunify' does not work with Debian ... and how do you
set the 'Immutable Linkage Invert' bit? I cannot 'chattr +I' - Do I need to
patch the ctx16-kernel ...?

 Try starting with something like the debian potato base install if you want
something really trim. It's only 30MB.

Debian Woody seems to be more, about 80MB. About 10MB of that is dpkg
cache, and all but 20MB can be shared between vservers using Immutable
Linkage Invert.

Real Programmers don't like the Team Programming concept. Unless of course, they are the Chief Programmer.
