1) what is the appropriate way to change the default

symlink, which works.

The location of the container is described in the container config
file with the lxc.rootfs variable.

Yes, but I think some of the lxc-* commands assume /var/lib/lxc as
the starting point for finding the config. I couldn't make
lxc-shutdown work until I symlinked /var/lib/lxc -> <mylocation>.

I think all lxc-* commands have a -f option thus you can keep your
config files in /etc/lxc (I think that's the deafult) and point the
command to that file using -f. At that point the "real" location of
the rootfs should be found correctly without the symlink.

Hmm, I'm fairly new to containers, but the container config seems to be
<basepath>/container/config. In /etc/lxc I only see default.conf with
a single line: = empty.

Some of the lxc-* commands have the '-P' option, but e.g. not
