An LV for each user doesn't scale too well. Currently, on PlanetLab
(http://www.planet-lab.org) we have over 1400 users per server, sharing
370+ accounts, with about 50% of the accounts having vservers.
The virtual disk limit solution Herbert is developing is the only
solution that will scale to this size of system.
