See my answers inline. But I think we should also get an official
account on docker hub for biopython, Peter?

I will start by taking your suggestion of splitting the basic container
into two: with and without db support. Also I will replace the clumsy
templating system by docker hub dependencies...

After we cleanup and standartize the current mess, I think this is a
good idea. At least see if things fit with BioDocker.
Unless, of course, others think we should be autonomous for BioDocker.

PS - I currently have some time for this stuff. I do not know for how
long, but lets see ;)
