I have been looking at LXC and CGmanager but I think I'm after something
even more lightweight. I have currently no need for the whole virtualization
thing, more something in the line of the ability to by configuration divide
processes into a set of fixed groups and apply restrictions on e.g. memory
and cpu usage. This together with the ability to restart processes that are
killed by OOM would be enough to solve my problem.

I haven't been using procd yet but thought that this could be a nice place
to put that kind of functionality.
