Cool stuff.  I can see the "Here's my application, give me a Docker file
that runs it using httpd-latest." path being very easy on the user with
Docker and relatively easy on the binary provider.  (Unfortunately I don't
know nearly enough about the way Docker can be used to understand all the
implications for the user around software upgrades and managing their
configurations and applications.)
