If you want to eliminate dependency problems, just bundle the libraries and arrange load paths appropriately. No need to bundle the whole OS as well! I believe PC-BSD and some minor Linux distro I forget already handles packages this way.
It seems to me the current virtualization fad is rather sad. It really is motivated by hardware being better at keeping stable interfaces than software, but results in lots of wasted resources and energy.
