this would imho need some additional code to store which snapshot was
mounted - otherwise pct unmount will fail in some cases:

# pct set 100 -mp0 somestorage:somesize
# pct snapshot 100 test
# pct set 100 -delete mp0
# pct mount 100 -snapshot test
# pct unmount 100
umount: /var/lib/lxc/100/rootfs: target is busy
        (In some cases useful info about processes that
        use the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1).)
command 'umount -d /var/lib/lxc/100/rootfs/' failed: exit code 32

alternatively / additionally, it might be nice to allow parallel
mounting of snapshots by modifying the mountpoint target ("$rootdir").
e.g., the snapshot "test" would then be mounted to
'/var/lib/lxc/100/rootfs-test'. this would allow easy comparison of
snapshots and manual rollbacks on a per file base (similar to what some
backup solutions based on tar+rsync provide).
