I’ve pushed these two patches, with an extra comment in the Docker test
as you suggested.

So I was on the verge of renaming the ‘squashfs’ backend as a first
step, but I wasn’t sure about the name—naming is hard!

I thought about ‘singularity’, but that could be confused with SIF:

Then I thought about ‘singularity-squashfs’: it’s unambiguous but a bit

Another option is the status quo since both ‘--help’ and the manual
mention Singularity.
