Uhm. I do see the point. Virtual server webhosting. A decent way to
limit their disk space consumption at the same time avoid waste of
space. When a "simple" webhosting account can easily use up 500-1000MB
of data which 90% is the same data across all servers. Unify to simplify
updates and save space 10 vservers might save 9 gig of space easily.
However one thing I personally see as more important is the ability to
restrict memory usage and cpu resource usage.
