Thanks for your comments.  I'll make the suggested changes and post an 
updated version.

The application tag is intended to allow the user to specify one or more 
executables or scripts to run in the container.  A container can be 
extremely simple running a single executable or script.  In these simple 
cases, the application tag would allow the user to specify one or a few 
things to run in the container without having to deal with init scripts 
or configuration files.  In more complex setups, the application tag 
would be used to specify the initialization script or executable of 
their choosing.  Would your suggestion be to limit the user to specify a 
single app and if they want to run multiple apps, they should specify an 
init script?

I've looked quite a bit at the OpenVZ driver and will take a look at the 
VServer reference you provided.
