Looking at source code

It doesn't do too much thing.

I agree with Diemar, I can be easy to implement this in perl. 

(and possible to use qemu-img to create qcow2 file for example, ceph rbd, ... maybe reuse pve-storage  ? )

I am unsure if this is a good idea, because lxc-create does more things :) 
Maybe it will be better to implement this method (or even add own storage):

I am quit unsure if this lxc-create binary is what we want to use. 
I try to write my own create script now, hoping I can handle different 
storage types easier.
