It's on the todo list, it just that we haven't gotten around to actually
do it. Unfortunately it is slightly more complicated that running lxc
tests in the AWS setup.

I don't think this is a great idea. We invented the isolation-machine
for a reason. Tests shouldn't be implementing this themselves (and thus
duplicating effort). If anything, debci should be enhanced to use this
mechanism to provide isolation-machine facilities on lxc, but I am
illiterate on qemu, so I have no idea how feasible that is. It also
sounds like the wrong solution to the problem.
