util-vserver began as an experimental port of the 'vserver' package
to provide C-implementations of the base-tools and an automake based
build-system. When it become official (that means: when it become a
savannah project), the old 'vserver' package was still alive and
there were possible naming-conflicts with other, non-security context
'vserver' projects. Since it needed a name, I chose 'util-vserver',
which seems to be more describing than 'vserver'.

* I do not know how to program in 'shellmod'
* I can not test it
* the current version will not work with the new configuration scheme
  (see [1] for information about it; but this is work-in-progress so do
  not rely on it)
* linuxconf does not seem to be very wide-spread
