Docker would be a terrible choice for this; Docker is really designed to 
containerize a single app; for a suite of tools use LXD or nspawn.

While I haven't used nspawn, I'm a huge fan of LXD, which is simple, 
elegant, well maintained, and UNIX-y in feel.  If you're on Ubuntu or 
need to run an Ubuntu container, LXD is a no-brainer choice.
