Use vcsh when provisioning virtual environments

just as a self reminder and maybe somebody will implement this before me:

It would be fine, if I could specify a couple of vcsh repos when setting up an 
schroot or a virtual maschine (libvirt?) and there would be appropriate hooks 
in those systems that clone those repos in the home dir of the default user.

The default "Desktop" setup for schroot just mounts the user's home dir into 
the chroot to make configuration available in the schroot. Cloning vcsh repos 
would be a much safer approach.

Maybe somebody with more time likes this idea as much as I do... :-)

Best regards,

Thomas Koch,
