[systemd-devel] Creating containers from local .raw or tar images

The machinectl pull-* commands allow you to download container images,
but no such option (yet) exists for deploying from an image or tar file
on your local filesystem.

Are there plans to expand the machinectl pull-* commands to support
either absolute file paths or file:/// URLs?

My current dirty hack is to run an nginx instance that listens only on
localhost, and pull from http://localhost/path/to/container.tar.gz, but
this is far from ideal.
