+1 in general

I expect the zones are running a lot of Java things. I heard a lot of  
murmurs in the past about how well Java works on FreeBSD - is that  
likely to be an issue now?

On the build front, VMs for the different OSes will still likely be  
needed. It'd be good to go for some standard versions and maintenance  
guides here so there is some consistency.
