Mark, thanks a lot! I already have it running; I have a couple more I'm
sure I need to have:

allow.set_hostname = 0;
allow.sysvipc = 0;

but I definitely didn't have

exec.stop = "/bin/sh /etc/rc.shutdown";

which seems to be really beneficial for jail "clean shutdown" akin we do
when we shut down real system.

Thanks!
