Very true and that's been discussed a bit on the -devel list.

Also very true.  But, if you haven't done that then none of my scripts
will work at all, IAC, because they are all predicated upon being able
to find the hot configuration in ${LXC_VAR}/${VM} particularly to find
the rootfs and dereferences through the fstab.  End of discussion.  If
you don't do that or have some other standard location for the config
files, I don't see how any of it will work, so it's not even really
worth worrying about on my part and I'm not really interested in
supporting those cases.  In that case, please feel free to use my
scripts as an example of how you might roll your own for your own way of
managing things.  Which is all they are really offered up for, anyways.
I do try to comment the daylights out of them so others have some
insight into my thinking when I wrote them that way and why.
