Elixir Docker minimal images just got a lot easier

In case you missed it, Docker 17.05+ now supports multi-stage builds, which makes building minimal Elixir releases really easy.

Having worked out how to do this before multi-stage builds, using VOLUME mounts, multiple Dockerfiles, custom mix tasks and shell scripts, I can tell you, this is amazing easier: now all you need is Distillery, a base Elixir build image and docker build.
