Just to finish up on this one, the installation and first starts went
fairly well using the (not-all-up-to-date) Wiki guides. However, we ran
into problems with getting services started, which we tracked down to
upstart not getting, setting or understanding the runlevel or something.
In the end, we ran out of time and switched to VirtualBox for the Ubuntu
12LTS machine.

However, we are still interested in getting Ubuntu up as vserver guest,
and if you or anyone has some updated light to shed on running Ubuntu 12
guest, I would really appreciate it. An update to the Wiki would be
nice, or even I could do so if mailed some info.
