the vservers init script does only start those guests you tell it to, if you
don't specify any guest it will just make proc entries visible..

additionally the vservers init script ensures that on stop/reboot _all_ guests
are shut down probperly

so there is definitely no need to put one command (vprocunhide) in an extra
ini script.
