lxc-start-ephemeral is difficult to use with non-"ubuntu" accounts

lxc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Because of the current ssh approach used in lxc-start-ephemeral in lieu of lxc-attach, you need a password or key in the ubuntu account to connect. If you want to do this with automation, you can use a key. If you want to use this with another user and that user's key, you do not have an option at this time.

http://paste.ubuntu.com/865767/ adds support for this scenario. We will switch -k for -S to match the ubuntu template, per Serge's suggestion
