Similarly, if I may be bold enough to promote my sambaXP presentation work, I 
demonstrated running Samba containers on a single VM host with one set doing 
file server duty and another running as an AD DC. Docker provides the isolation 
between the two "Sambas" to make it work.

I'll admit this is more of a Proof-of-Concept than something done in 
production, but I'd love to get interest and assistance from people who'd be 
interested in running these in production. :-)
