whats the suckless view of containers and why? what about a
containerized init helper where sinit calls the container program and
then runs daemons and the rest of the system from containers? Do you
feel containers offer additional security/stability?

Just thinking about "cloud" stuff again and daydreaming about servers.

I suppose with a system as small as suckless offers it might be a moot
point by the time you fire up several VM instances. VM's would add a
semi redundancy in the event of a single failure in that it wouldn't
take down the other services but then you have other issues if the
system fails anyways right?!

just random thoughts.
