 From this 'marketing' angle no virtualisation technique fits and never
will. Vserver is very practical solution and everything that matters is
virtualised and isolated from other vservers.

 As you know there are COW-links in the works,and you can always use cowloop,
but this requires keeping your data in file, and additional mountpoint for
every vserver, which might be a management nightmare.
 Besides, Bertl doesen't like cowloop.

that would be interesting, could you please elaborate on that.
