Well said Bert! If at all possible, I'd love to see some of the features of
the "business" vps solutions built on the Linux-VServer project
re-integrated into the main tree. If there's anything I personally can do to
help, I'd be happy to test just about anything for you as well as help you
bughunt. I only have 2 more words for you:
