Yes, I want to be "immersed" in the target environment -- using native
versions of applications for the actual development environment, testing,
etc.; having "man" pages show the right thing for that version; allowing
multiple users to be in the same space at the same time (for group
debugging, etc.); have ports and other kernel resources disjoint from the
host; run legacy versions of services/daemons; etc.
