I've been having fun playing with jails on my home server. There's one 
for databases, one for a webserver, another for using as a play shell 
server, etc. We use jails heavily at work for encapsulating services, 
and I can make a pretty good argument there for doing so. In general, 
though, do you see jails as particularly important or useful when not in 
a hosting environment where you're giving root access to an untrusted 
party? How far do you go toward segregating services? Theoretically, you 
could have a jail per daemon, but it seems like down that path lies madness.
