Grover: Fedora for short-lifespan server instances

I like the idea, but I don't think upgrading from Fedora X to Fedora X+1 is the problem per-se. The problem is making sure your application won't hit any bugs in the latest version or uses deprecated APIs that were removed (or worse, relies on bugs found in previous versions). One-application-per-VM won't help you here, unless you want to test your application with every release, in which case you're back to square one.

Maybe application containers are a better solution, where you bundle your application with the versions of libraries that it was tested with. But then, security updates for these containers will be a major pain.
