I agree with Julien, jails are simple, slim, flexible, and convenient. 
Easy to update, upgrade, and migrate. I maintain over 3 dozens of jails 
on several physical machines. Never had any trouble with updates or 
upgrades. And mind that I build jails "by the book", using ezjail is 
supposed to be even simpler, I'm baffled why you had problems with these.

Just my $0.02
