Very much interesting. . . I know Ike has been following this a bit, and 
he made me aware a while ago.

It could be cool for lots of reasons. . .

Let jail admins deal with firewalling themselves.

Really take a huge leap into competing with other virtualized systems.

Haven't gone through the presentation yet . . . but I'd rather see more 
strict controls on memory and disk usage (no, not just quotas) on the 
jails from the host first.

And after going through that thread quick. . . I really don't want to 
see another 5.x mess for FBSD. . .
