      Description

      The current container-executor invocation interface (especially for launch container) is cumbersome to use . Launching a container now requires 13-15 arguments. This becomes especially problematic when additional, potentially optional, arguments are required. We need a better mechanism to deal with this. One such mechanism could be to handle this could be to use a file containing key/value pairs (similar to container-executor.cfg) corresponding to the arguments each invocation needs. Such a mechanism would make it easier to add new optional arguments to container-executor and better manage existing ones.
