I'll try to put that into an HOWTO suitable for any GNU/Linux host... after so many people fetch their top forge source code and Launchpad becomes responsive again :D

It's not so much because you _have_ to. It's becuase you _can_. It is really very nice. I take advantage of virtualization nowadays whenever I can because it's just simplier and cleaner for myself to deal with.
Embrace it. Love it. VM is your friend. Especially if it's KVM... but other types are fine. The downside with KVM is that the 'total solution' for it is piecemeal and uses different packages rather then being a single package like it is for Virtualbox. It means manual configuration and whatnot for much of it, but the reward is stability, good performance, and customization.
The other major downside is that you need to have virtualization extensions for your hardware to use it.

I don't know how you thought that I care about the number of KVMs or whatever.
What I care about is getting things done easier, cleaner, better, and quicker. That is what having a nice VM solution allows me to do.
