A discussion has come up about getting bubblewrap and LXC to cooperate.

One use case would be allowing Steam, which recently started launching games
in a bwrap container, to work in unprivileged LXC containers. (Flatpak can
already do this, but unfortunately, it doesn't serve the same needs that LXC

I think some perspective from LXC maintainers would be valuable there:

Responded to the issue on Github, basically this seems to all work
just fine in LXD when nesting is enabled.
This kind of thing cannot work inside a privileged container and to do
it with unprivileged LXC is definitely possible (that's what LXD does)
but requires quite a bit of care to get all pieces right.
