I haven't played with network namespaces - assuming it all integrates
fine, can someone give some examples of using it? Yes I write this
having not tried google, but hopefully you will be gentle...

Is there any way it would make sense to integrate these "network
namespaces" more tightly with vserver? (Again asked without having read
up on what this actually means?)

Sounds interesting anyway!

Quite clearly the future is going to increasingly involve virtualisation
- I imagine many of these solutions will start to collide and overlap as
time goes by
