I would like to see the tools as being inclusive, rather than minimal.
You wouldn't expect to buy a car, then have to go somewhere else to get
the seats and panelling.
It is easily possible to have the source build into more than one package,
make parts of it optional, etc - to avoid forcing everyone to install
tons of what they might perceive as rubbish "just to use vserver".
Sure, projects like OpenVPS or StrongBox that have a different goal -
providing business level objectives package rather than system level -
still need to be seperate projects (but then, maybe parts of OpenVPS do
belong in util-vserver, maybe all of it, who knows!).
There may be a time when this really does deserve to be taken out and
put in another package, but I don't think that time has come yet...
