That's my point. It's not the interesting thing. It's more important to
limit each vserver to what you give your customer, than to unify the

Not really. I've got a couple of them running full distributions. Though
limiting them on certain area's by giving access to a common
mysql-server instead of having mysql installed on each vserver.
