Ok, thanks for the info.  FWIW I intend to cut quite a bit out of the
section (as well as add information on new features) in order to make
it more readable, more maintainable, and less redundant (i.e. refer to
the manpages rather than list detailed lxc.conf info)  So it's going
to be more of a re-write than a review.
