I know very little about docker, but I do use debian images (and other
system images) quite often, - in particular, to test samba and qemu
(which I happen to maintain too).  I use various images to build samba
for different versions of different systems this way, too.

The procedure outlined in there is trivial, they use debootstrap to
install a base system image into a directory, create a tar archive
out of it and import it to docker. Debootstrap utility is a shell
script which is supposed to run on various unix-like OSes.

Andrew, what is needed, exactly?  I mean, what should this image
contain and how it will be used?
