networking in Linux-VServer happens on the host to
provide highest possible performance, which atm
means that the iptable entries have to be set on
the host too, this might change in the future, but
usually it doesn't pose any problem ...

typically you have about 8 devices in your guest,
which are created with the 'build' methods, and you
really don't want more than those inside a guest for
security reasons, so there is really no point in
using devfs or udev ...
