Or Xen (which I think NetBSD is the only one supporting) or vkernels
(DragonFly-only) or hey, jails, which has been around forever but
everyone has a slightly different version of.

It's frustrating to have so many projects working on the same problem
in different ways, and not only every one with a case of NIH, but not
even looking for a compatible methodology.  At this point, Linux
virtualization is more consistent than BSD, which goes against the
one-system-with-predictable-results selling point that's been around
for so long.
