Interesting idea - though I think you can do this with just resizing
partition and filesystem as well. Perhaps you can play with generating your
own system VMs though. (Look at tools/appliance/build.sh and the associated
Readme file for how to build your own)

I think there might be problems here, but not sure you can't already do
this with multiple networks; or even advanced networks with SG.
