Where can I read more about the unique and advanced features of qjail
missing in ezjail?

I am especialy interested in features which help update and upgrade
multiple jails and software therein.

I must admit it's a bit of PITA in ezjail when it comes to upgrading
third party software. I have set up a pkg repository for that purpose,
but still I have to visit each jail individually and run "pkg upgrade"
from inside.
