Except that you've got to do your development inside a virtual machine
anyway if you're using a Mac.  Docker only supports Linux natively,
though you could no doubt do something very similar in any OS that
supports chroot jails/containers/etc.

Definitely check out docker, though, it's a nifty tool.
