Aside the DockerHub issue, ok.

And let fix the DockerHub ethical issue later. :-)
I mean let start by build Docker images with Cuirass, then we will see
how/where to publish them.

Just to fix the idea, the simple Docker image containing
Emacs+Guile+Geiser (the scheme SDK ;-) is about 300MB with '.tar.gz'
and 1GB with only '.tar'

I am giving a try.

Thank you.
