[arch-general] Building in docker?

For various reasons I'm looking into not using `makechrootpkg` when
building the 200+ packages I put into a non-official repo. Obviously
it's important to keep the building environment separate from my
ordinary system environment. Going to full virtualisation is
definitely overkill and the only containers I know of are chroots and
Docker has some nice attributes, in particular no need for root
access. However, I don't know a whole lot about it, so I wonder are
there any aspects to it that makes it a bad choice for building

fun, and it comes without a 30-day, money-back guarantee.
