Hi Volker,
  Yes I understand using xen very well.  But VM is not the answer in all 
instances.  Sometimes it may be that VE is all that is needed.  
Especially if you have limited resources and need to create a lot of 
VM/VE.  Each is going to have their place in the virtualization 
spectrum.  I'm investigating OpenVZ because for my need it might just be 
all that is needed (except for ipvsman of course :-)  )
