its a good place to put it when you use the vservers init script to auto

such to just run vprocunhide... i know i can set all the guests to some mark
other than default or change the default to some other name, but when working
on the systems its a pain to keep editing back and forth so vservers doesnt
find anything to start..

please realize this is my own uneducated opinion, but i still vote for a
separatre script. for me the way i work and use them its far more convenient.

i just re-emerged util-vserver-0.30.208-r3 to see the msg that i missed... it
doesnt tell me that vprocunhide is no longer a separate script. it tells me
to run vprocunhide then goes on to tell me an init script was installed and
how to add it with no reference that vprocunhide was added into it.. there is
nothing about changes.. sorry:)

* You have to run the vprocunhide command after every reboot
 * in order to setup /proc permissions correctly for vserver
 * use. An init script has been installed by this package.
 * To use it you should add it to a runlevel:
 * rc-update add vserver default
 * This init script will also help you to start/stop your vservers
 * on reboot. See /etc/conf.d/vserver for details
