I will get onto this and start work ASAP, but it's really just a matter
of finding the time :/

For my own purposes - ie, webhosting - I consider this principle
of multiple IPs within a VS to be essential, even if only for an option.

While one excellent use of VS is to put each user inside his own
isolated sandbox, another good use is to put many users inside
the one VS - if those users are to have SSL, SSH, or FTP, then
each user must have a unique IP.

I still haven't had the time to even install the VS stuff on a local
test box, but will soon .....
