To expand a bit on this, the "old" tooling at
https://github.com/CentOS/sig-cloud-instance-build produces a ~42MB
tarball, and an imported container space of around 210MB.

The exact same kickstart used through pungi/koji to automate the
container process produces a ~60MB tarball and a 360MB base container,
because several additional packages are included for ...reasons.

I'm likely going to publish the container produced the *old* way while
we debug the issues in the compose tooling.
