*nod* okay, yeah. That'd be just fine.

Is it all lies? :)

Well, Docker is the container format du jour, but what goes into the
container is broader than that.

That said, some of the examples I gave are terrible and probably should be
dealt with in other ways. For example, when nspawn is used to start the
container, it takes care of the device stuff.

However, the idea of making sure the images are written with the expectation
that they'll be copied and reused is going to be generally useful.

Yes, I think this is completely true.
