I'm not entirely sure.  On the one hand, you could surely bind mount it and
do 'tar | docker import', but on the other hand, everything you said.

I guess I was thinking more of a general method to create a minimal install
(a kickstart, or a tiny package group, or whatever) rather than just
shipping an actual ISO.  The word "image" has become overloaded in our
brave new world. :)  I feel like, if we're going to put in the work to
create a 'micro' install, we should go the extra mile to make sure that at
least part of that work is applicable to LXC.
