[openstack-dev] [magnum] Containers lifecycle management

I'm fairly new to Magnum and I hope my comments below are accurate.

After reading some docs, links and other references, I seem to understand the
Magnum team has a debate on whether providing abstraction for containers
lifecycle is something the project should do or not. There's a patch that
attempts to remove PODs and some debates on whether `container-*` commands are
actually useful or not.

Based on the above, I wanted to understand what would be the recommended way for
services willing to consume magnum to run containers? I've been digging a bit
into what would be required for Trove to consume Magnum and based on the above,
it seems the answer is that it should support either docker, k8s or mesos

- Is the above correct?
- Is there a way to create a container, transparently, on whatever backend using
  Magnum's API?

Sorry if I got something wrong,
