IMO a strange idea. It is possible to build arbitrary virtual networks with
up to 10 bridges, but this makes no sense without a firewall to control traffic.
Setting up such beast is complex and error prone.

The KVM hardware tab allows you to add more eth devices.

Never tested openvz with more than one veth - this is 
currently not supported.
