In answer to my own question: no, xhyve is just another way to run a VM on 

I looked around for a way to run your containers as they are, but I didn’t find 
anything.  I tried to import lilydev-debian-0.2 into Docker, but I gave up when 
I found no /bin/bash to run in the container.

I believe I could have imported and used your full VM image, but I wasn’t very 
interested because it includes stuff I don’t really need (like a GUI).  
Instead, after a small amount of work, and relying heavily on the list of 
packages in your mkosi.debian, I succeeded in creating a Docker image based on 
Ubuntu 16.04 and then using that to build lilypond, the regression tests, and 
the English language docs.

So far, I see some advantages of Docker over VirtualBox.  For one thing, the 
clock appears to stay in sync after the host sleeps and wakes.  I intend to use 
Docker for a while to see what happens.  If the kernel panics only half as 
often as under VirtualBox, I’ll be a happy man.
