Ah that's what I was looking for.
But much of vimage only makes sense in
conjunction with processes - a process attached to a vimage can see that
vimage's network interfaces. There are still things like routing that
work independent of processes I suppose, but it seems to me much what a
vimage does is provide the network stack to the processes it's tied to.
Yet, VIMAGE is very similar in concept with VRF
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VRF) and I think
FreeBSD will look very promising in router-like
Maybe there are applications of VIMAGE which
haven't been considered by its developers.
Time will tell...
