Odd, that surprises me, I thought images.linuxcontainers.org had that.  But,
you create a lxc cirros container, create a dummy lxd container, copy the
lxc rootfs over into it, then (once verified everything is working) publish
that lxd container as a new image that you can launch containers from.  It's
a hastle, but only the first time.
