I would be happy to have some sort of system daemon mode, which
minimizes footprint while maintaining relatively decent performance
(for things like the occasional TLS handshake). I think most such
applications wouldn't even need dynamic tuning.
Right now, I fear that I need to put all these system management tasks
into a single VM (MVM-style) because it seems that without lots of
tuning, separate VMs would consume too much resources on some of our
smaller hosts. (Of course, this is a psychological issue to some
extent, and it's note very likely that the code actually exists before
those machines are phased out. 8-/)
