We could do that, it will just require an additional setup step. The advantage
to DockerHub is that it's the default place that docker will look if you try
to run an image that doesn't exist yet on your machine. If we provide a custom
download location, people will need to either configure Docker to look there
(which is needed for upgrades to happen seamlessly, should they follow the
"latest" tag), or download and import the image manually.
