reasons for not using perl (or any other script
language) for the vserver script:
- sh is available on _all_ systems
- vserver hooks are probably shell scripts too
reasons agains using shell scripts:
- overhead is high (forks, I/O, etc)
- simple things often need complicated solutions
feel free to add more reasons ...
