As always complex doesn't automatically translate to complicated ;)
In this particular case I had no issues with following the
instructions I found on docker. While when spending the same amount
of time on getting lxc to work I get stuck almost immediately:
% lxc-create -n test -t archlinux
lxc_container: No mapping for container root
lxc_container: Error chowning /home/magnus/.local/share/lxc/test/rootfs to container root
lxc_container: Error creating backing store type (none) for test
lxc_container: Error creating container test
And quick googling didn't turn up anything useful. Reading through
the Linux Containers page  didn't help either.
