Note that as of this release, the use of "lxd-images import lxc" is
deprecated in favor of using the remote.

For example:

lxd-images import lxc centos 7 amd64 --alias centos
lxc launch centos my-container

Now becomes:

lxc remote add images    # one-time setup
lxc launch images:centos/7/amd64 my-container
