That sounds pretty neat. For comparison, Debian also provides a program
called debootstrap that is used to create Debian chroot environments. It
probably doesn't work on any POSIX system, though, just Linux ones - but
it does work on pretty much any glibc+Linux system you can find.

I want to just make a personal note that I prefer Linux Vserver because it
feels lighter-weight to me. It is slightly more flexible than Xen/VMWare
because Xen and VMWare require you to manage RAM sizes of your guests,
whereas vserver can be just used as a "container" to prevent different
virtual systems from seeing each other - but resources are shared between
the vservers and your main machine as usual.

than the sun."
"Why?", he was asked.
"Because at night we need the light more."
