[lxc-users] near-live migration

Right now I'm using the sequence 'stop - move - start' for migration of
containers (live migration fails too often).

The 'move' step can take some time. I wonder if it would be easy to
implement/do something like:
  - prepare move (e.g. take snapshot an copy upto snaphot)
  - stop
  - copy the rest
  - remove snapshot on dst
  - remove container from src
  - start container on dst

That would minimize downtime without the complexity of a live

What are your thoughts?
