It's like the Solaris Crossbow project. Virtual network stacks.

I don't know if you refer to this or to the normal operation of zones
since Solaris 10. The later one we will get for jails too, but this is
just a side effect (sort of, there are patches floating around to get
multi-IPs into jails in a different way before the VNET stuff, so that
we can have the multi-IPS for jails in 7.x too).
