Oh, no, no. That's not how it works at all.

confd runs *inside* the containers. It's input files and command line
arguments tell it how to watch for the settings to be used just for that
one container instance. It does all of its work (reading templates,
watching settings, HUPing services, etc.) from inside the container.

The only inputs confd needs from outside of the container are the
connection information to get to etcd. Everything else can be put
in the system package for the application.
