Hello,

This may be of little interest to most, but just in case...

I published docker images for the BOINC client and the boinccmd tool this week-end.
This allows you to run BOINC within a container and leave your host machine clean of any leftover data, with (hopefuly) little overhead.

Images are available at:

- https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/laurentmalvert/docker-boinc/
- https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/laurentmalvert/docker-boinccmd/

The code and (sparse) documentation is available at:

- https://github.com/laurent-malvert/docker-boinc
- https://github.com/laurent-malvert/docker-boinccmd

Feel free to break it apart and improve it, as it's probably a bit rough around the edges.

For instance, without customization and depending on your docker configuration, you'll likely see a new host ID show up in your project stats everytime you recreate the container. That sort of stuff is fine for my use case, but may be off-putting for others I guess.

Also, note that I created this under my namespace on both GitHub and the Docker Registry, but I'll be glad to create the required boinc namespace and/or transfer ownership if desired.
