Is there perhaps a configuration that we could add to the Docker image
meta-data to have Docker do the right thing?  The right thing might be
to map these files from the host into the container automatically, or to
instruct Docker to create them when starting the container.

I would prefer to accomplish this via configuration “hints” if possible
instead of creating dummy files with specific contents.

(I don’t know if this is at all possible.)
