[lxc-users] lxd api return of /1.0/containers/<name>/exec

I've been working on obtaining two way communications with the /exec 
URI, but your needs may more simple then mine.

When you POST to /exec, you probably want to include the 'record-output' 
key with a (boolean) value of true. ie

'{"command": ["df -f /"], "record-output": true}'

The doc's state that stdout and stderr will be redirected to a log file.

It doesn't state where the log file is; but I'm willing to bet that the 
reply will include a path that you can subsequently GET.

If this works for you, let me know, I'm interested in at least obtaining 
the output from some commands.
