Support for .devcontainer
I love working with .devcontainer setups, but I don't love the proprietary plug-ins and sole support for Visual Studio Code (that's right, not even the FOSS VSCode works with it). The Podman support is broken, primarily because of reliance on treating it like a Docker daemon for container builds (a not great design).
Is there interest in supporting .devcontainer + Podman + Builder? Builder can already pick up a Podman container as a build/working tree environment. I think what .devcontainer needs is integration with Buildah. Podman Compose integration would also be necessary to truly and fully support .devcontainer in multi-container setups, which some projects use. Support for truly remote container hosts would be also neat (while I'm throwing out ideas).
I expect the design of this can be a lot more straightforward than in Visual Studio Code's plugins because userland container permissions and the rootless build process are both lower privilege operations than how it works with Docker. It might even work out of the box on my Silverblue desktop!
I'm interested in funding this work. I know funding is often less scarce than time, but the offer is there if it helps.
