sure it would be, but there are two problems with this
- cacct doesn't contain the actual 'traffic' going over
the wire, it just accounts the socket data
- how to map that socket data to interfaces for a guest
having multiple interfaces active?

I think traffic accounting (in or outside the guest)
should be done via iptable account rules (which will
also be visible inside the guest btw)
