Yep, an interesting exercise.

I'm not worrying about memory, I'm worrying about admin overhead. I
think for deploying and maintaining a cluster of dedicated condor worker
hosts, one might wish for a streamlined distro that aims to be

That, or run on BSD with its linux/docker subsystem. That's even better,
with ZFS and CARP in the kernel, no caching DNS resolver in init, no
system python, and ability to edit /etc/fstab without rebooting. ISTR
condor had *BSD builds back when?
