I was going to say, of the in-tree container support in Nova, the 
Virtuozzo container driver (part of the libvirt driver) is the most well 
maintained and actually has CI testing. We don't have regular CI testing 
for the LXC driver, we have an experimental queue job for it but it has 
rolling failures that no one has been able to figure out so it's never 
been made voting.
