Unless you provide a mapping file that gives the correspondence between 
the file paths ids stored in the reused fontconfig cache and the file 
paths exposed by the container layer. And this mapping file can work 
with any method of font directory remapping, via 
containers/nfs/whatever, without requiring writes (reproducible or not) 
to the font directories themselves. And unless you are moving things all 
over the place continuously, the mapping file can be a static config 
that pretty much never changes.
