I prefer that name to systemd-nspawn. As Lennart's original comment on
the systemd-machine package name suggestion was "the name of the daemon
doesn't matter", I'd argue that the name of the binary also doesn't
matter too much! After all, the "nspawn" itself doesn't mean anything
unless you know what nspawn is, and if you know what it is, then you
know what a container is, so the name systemd-container makes sense there.

So +1 from me for that name as a general recommendation.
