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.
