Nice to hear :) Thanks for using and testing my software.

This topic just made it onto my TODO list, when implementing the
jail-renaming stuff, I already thought about (re-)imaging or depacking
jails, but dropped it, since error handling is a rather ... boring task
when you need to take into account that ressources double while copying
jails.

But as an outstanding feature request I can't put it down, anymore ;)

Oh my god, its just a shell script, you know ;) Let me hear if you need
a "just shut the fuck up"-mode to make parsing easier for you. Right now
ezjail is rather verbose and helpful.
