If you are on a recent box (don't know minimal requirements) where you can run
jails in jails.

With some tuning: allowing a jail to mount zfs, nullfs, and preloading the
drivers linux, linprocfs, linsysfs, nullfs etc then it is doable. and allowing
your jail to run jails

I have a howto from a user who had done this, I have to work on it so that I can
turn it into a useful documentation.
