libcgroup and /etc/rc.d scripts

I was poking around /etc/rc.d, and I noticed that the libcgroup package adds two scripts here, rc.cgconfig and rc.cgred. However, neither of these scripts are called by the main startup scripts, so I'm not sure how they are supposed to be run (unless called from rc.local).

Any insights on what these scripts are for?

Well, CGROUPS (or Linux containers) are something like an SUPER-CHROOT.

You can configure something like an chroot which act like a virtual/independent machine, with it's own users (even as in root user) and which can be even be ... rebooted.

The CGROUPS are useful for creating an server where you sell 'virtual' machines.
