LXC is the future replacement of our OpenVZ kernel packages. However,
reportedly it's not nearly as stable yet.

At the same time, the OpenVZ upstream git has only made it as far as
mainline .27. See: http://git.openvz.org/ Unless they shift up to .32
soonish, or someone packages the .27 kernel in Debian, we're unlikely
to see continued support for it in squeeze. :/
