I don't see how it'd fix that delay - the delay is from pulling down the
docker container onto the host. That's independent of the method of building
the container. The only thing making this faster is reducing the size of the
docker container. There's a bunch we could do on that front - e.g. removing
arm specific tools and debug symbols from the various layers (afaict there's
no option not to install them).

We could try to transition to using full VMs instead of docker containers (gcp
fetches the image data on demand instead of ahead-of-time), but that'd likely
be nontrivial due to licensing etc.

Not sure what the problem here is - it worked for me in the past.
