I would be generally cautious for both approaches without proper support
in the surrounding infrastructure. In particular an upgrade to a
depending library would need to automatically cause a rebuild of the
container in the case of a security upgrade when such embedding happens,
which is generally a bad thing unless you have a large scale deployment
and defined QA processes for terminating and replacing containers with
new deployments regularly.
