Topic: More packages in MathComp Docker?

Before opening an issue, just wanted to check what the general sentiment is regarding additional packages in MathComp Docker images.

The current images only have the "core" MathComp packages: coq-mathcomp-ssreflect, coq-mathcomp-fingroup, coq-mathcomp-algebra, coq-mathcomp-solvable, coq-mathcomp-field, coq-mathcomp-character

Yet, according to the Coq Community Survey 2022 as seen here, there are quite a few MathComp packages that are more popular than solvable and character that are not among the core packages - for example, finmap, analysis, real-closed, mathcomp-zify.

Even if the main purpose of the Docker images is to enable testing of some of these projects, how about at least including the "utility" packages like mathcomp-zify and hierarchy builder? That would save a ton of CI time for many projects in Coq-community, for example. And via the Coq Platform releases, there is already a default choice of version.
