I agree. As virtualization technology becomes more and more involved  
and frequent on users systems, particularly with advanced Linux users,  
I think there needs to be a strong focus on ensuring that all releases  
run in virtualized environments without any major issues. ie.  

Perhaps a dedicated team among the developers who specialize in this area.
