When I was looking at this, Xen wasn't anywhere near stable enough for
my liking (I did look into it, but the Xen kernel failed to boot on my
test box whereas the non-Xen kernel booted fine) and VirtualBox wasn't
suitable (this was before Sun took it over).

Things have changed, but I don't want to rebuild now.  If I ever get
a new (better, stronger, faster) machine then I'll look into it again,
but then maybe ZFS on Linux will be a strong contender by that point :-)
