Yep, I'm also not seeing anything related to "nesting" on
"nova-compute-lxd" source code...

git clone
cd nova-compute-lxd
grep -ri nesting *

Yes, I need this feature (LXD-in-LXD), specially because someone else,
implemented it! Now I want it...   =P

Also, I don't want Docker inside LXD, because Docker is weird (for
me), I prefer "VM-Like behaviour"...

I'll fill a request on Github...
