Current F22 test base image is 247M, so we're down 7. :)

In seriousness, this has crept up quite a lot since the initial
versions we'd worked on a while ago, and has some huge room for
improvement. I see it includes dracut and grub2, and fedora-logos, and
a bunch of other stuff that seems kind of questionable. (Freetype?

And then there's of course systemd and its dependencies — not sure of
the status of work around that in docker.

Python is probably the next big one, but we can't get rid of that
until there's a good way to run DNF externally.
