Because from what I gather, VirtualDomain RA works only with virsh (KVM/Xen),
but I need OpenVZ. The second reason is that I have groups of virtual machines
that work on the same filesystem. There is no way to get this working with
VirtualDomain RA, especially given the next point:

Well, then I will need to hack unfortunately :( I hope it is possible for a
resource agent to instruct other agents to move...
