[Netkit.users] only one access at a time? (to the virtual surroundings)

Hi Miguel,

I guess your problem is to allow different users to simultaneously 
access virtual machines from an external network.

The situation is as follows.
Virtual machines can be connected to the external world by using "tap" 
collision domains (see the man page of vstart for more information about 
how this can be done). However, this connection is implemented in such a 
way that virtual machines are "hidden" by NAT. That is, they can access 
the external world but you are prevented from easily locating them from 
the outside.
A reasonable solution to this would be to allow users to access the host 
machine on which Netkit virtual machines are being run. This would 
enable them to reach every virtual machine with the "guest address" you 
have used on the vstart command line.
