One could also, clearly, set up multiple KVM- or Xen-based
virutual machine images on which to run lmgrd. But one
might then ask why one would want to do this, given
that part of the point of mulitple lmgrds is to provide
phyisical server redundancy, unless as Mark appears to
be thinking, you simply believe you need one lmgrd for
each vendor...
