Sorry, my original memory was correct.  At the team meeting in 2009 we
did not decide to deprecate OpenVZ, but later on we did so.  This was
stated in the release notes for 'squeeze':


Therefore, I would say there is no chance of OpenVZ being reinstated in
a Debian stable release.

My offer of help in setting up an OpenVZ APT repository still stands.
