I researched a bit on the topic. Vagrant Boxes seem useless because that
would mean there is some virtual machine running behind (like
Virtualbox), and <https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/docker/boxes.html>
states that Vagrant Boxes are not required for Docker images to be
running. However, it would still be nice to have such Debian Docker
*image* that supports all the same things that current Debian Vagrant
Boxes do (for example ssh so that vagrant provisioning could be used).
Images at <https://hub.docker.com/_/debian/> currently miss these features.

I will update you with more info if I think this is feasible to do and
also if with Fai or not.
