Hey Brian, interesting work!

I was wondering if you planned support for multiple hypervisor types in
parallel. With the recent addition of LXC, it makes sense to run an IaaS
that proposes two types of instances, say KVM and LXC, and routes
requests to the appropriate subset of compute nodes. Currently we only
support one type of compute node.
