Yup, and the crowd of slashdotters have already shot down this idea,
a'la the following comment:


I'd like to post my agreement; VZ is generally a massive pile, is a
resource hog extrodinare, and sucks royally compared to both Linux
VServers and FreeBSD jails. HSPComplete is even uglier. I mean, the
vzbackup scripts require SSH, even if you're using them to backup the
local machine, and they have this nasty habit of locking on a random
VPS and then dying silently.
