It's interesting that you mentioned it, because yesterday I worked on
a similar project:

The only difference is that it doesn't support multiple architectures,
neither it relies on a shared image. But the goal is exactly the same
you described.

I have been doing Alpine packaging for less than a week, but already
seen how much easier the process can be when you use disposable build
