Is it possible for Nova to control different hypervisor types?

Hi,

It is to my understanding that a single Nova controller can handle only one type of hypervisor? What I mean: Would it be possible to have one hypervisor running kvm instances, another hypervisor dedicated to running lxc containers and having a single nova controller control both? Furthermore, would it be possible to combine bare metal (driver) or does this not make any sense?

Thanks in advance,
