I have quickly hacked ezvzdump yesterday to add ccollect (some simpler
rsnapshot in bash) to snapshot CTs with rsync+hardlinks, where only
the changes are stored on the disk.

To quickly roll back to a previous snapshot of the VZ I have to create
a tar file of the directory, and use vzrestore.

If anyone interested by my hack I can try to push the changes to github.

My question is:

Is there a simpler alternative to vzrestore which would simply support

The time to tar/untar is a waste in my case.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
